Beware…it’s the Ides of March. The day the soothsayers warned Julius Caeser to watch out for. But he didn’t, and Brutus stabbed him to death. (Also, today is the birthdate of an ex-boyfriend…I wish I had prophets to warn me to stay away back then!)
And so today I warn you…don’t let your WIP catch you off guard. It’s not supposed to be the death of you. Don’t be like Julius Caeser and ignore all the warnings. Stay in control. Whip that sucker into shape. Make it your bitch.
Don’t let it take over. Or you know, stab you twenty-three times.
(Please insert any other bad metaphors you can think of related to the Ides of March.) (Sidenote: this is why I shouldn’t write blog posts when I’m exhausted.) (I am using a lot of parentheses.) (Whenever I write the words “a lot” I think of this.)
Now that I got that out of the way, how is everyone doing in week 3? Better than week 2?
I managed to revise four chapters last week, which is really impressive considering I barely had any free time. And I use the term “revise” loosely when I really mean “rewrite.” I’m on a roll now with this book! I love it so much!
But I’ll be extra cautious today so my mss doesn’t surprise me. (Or actually that might be a good thing.) (As long as there’s no stabbing.)
(Another parentheses for good measure.) (((It makes me feel like I’m being hugged.)))
