I’m neck deep now in editing, and I have two new betas reading #wheelernovel. I’ll tell you, not hearing from either of them since I sent a copy is burning a hole in my stomach.
Do they like it? Has the change of direction completely f-ed the story? How can it be longer now!? What do I cut without sacrificing storyline? What little fluff remains is in the relationship, I can’t cut that! Why did I chain myself to an actual calendar!
Am I nuts for still wanting to do this?
The litany goes on and on and on.
And yet, I look to the next few months and think about relaunching. What do I do? HOW do I do it? Do I look for more reviews? (It was hard enough to get the new betas.)
Fuck – why does this have to be so hard!
At least training for the century on April 29th is right on cue. Thirty-two miles into headwind felt like 100 this weekend.
Physically, I’m as ready as I’ve been for an end-of-the-season century, thanks to my winter spent on rollers.
Mentally, I’m looking forward to not thinking for 6+ hours while riding.
