S L O W
I've been slow lately. Real slow. Drafting is easier. I can measure drafting (i.e. "I just wrote 2500 words today!"). But I can't measure revising. It's just there. A chapter and then a page and then a paragraph and then a word at a time. No counting. No red-faced, breathless typing. Just reading, making faces, fixing, experimenting and reading some more.
I need some diet coke or chocolate or maybe both. Although, I don't think they go well together.
How do you get through revisions? I need a system. Does anyone have a system? If so, please share!
Also, hypothetically speaking, if I were to come up with a dessert that involved, let's say, chocolate and diet coke, what would it be?
It's just hypothetical.
In case you're wondering, the photo is a representation of the Slow Car Movement. I thought it relevant.
