As writers, we all have varying goals for our days. We might decide to spend the whole day reading emails and following blogs. Perhaps we have personal work that needs done, like house cleaning (sometimes) or paying the bills (always once a week).
But sometimes, glory be! we actually begin working on the edits of our books. I've been working on final edits (received from the publisher last week) for my book, "Guardian." Yes, I've cleared out emails. Yes, I've visited blogs. Yes, I've social networked.
But when it is all said and done, I get to the real goal of the day: work on my edits! Now, this can be a dreary task, especially if we're working on a novel that we've had in process for sometime. But, sometimes, working on the novel is great! Like now.
I feel the heady flush of excitement at the thought of the always editing phase turning into the really, for sure, for real, phase of never editing this book again. Publication date is always on my horizon, but today, the horizon is a little bit nearer and doggone, can't I see that finished book rising with the sun?
So never give up on those edits! Always face your day with renewed vim and vigor. And sometimes, you'll see that things will finally fall into place and you'll finally get to the finish line.
