So I've spent the last fortnight procrastinating and over-analysing and similar, and I think I'm finally ready to start my first draft. It's not like it's my child for heaven's sake, but I've been pulling my hair out about ruining the story (and not having a working toilet, but that's another matter entirely!) and not actually getting on with it.
I mean, I may well end up ruining it, but that's where a second draft comes in!
Is anyone else in this position too? It's scary at the beginning of an ms, and it seems like a giant mountain to climb. If you're about to start work, or have already begun and would like a buddy to share first draft highs and lows with, let me know! My email's in the contact tab:)
I've got this Sunday to myself so plan to knuckle down for good then, although hopefully once I press publish here I can finally bite the bullet and get a few words down!
And just because, here are some owls in love;)
