Having fun revising Project Fun
This is the stage where I believe in the story. I study the calendar to figure out how quickly I can write the rest. I imagine some day Project Fun could be a real book.
It's also the stage where I expect disaster to strike at any moment: a huge, looming plot hole, or the realization that my character isn't the slightest bit sympathetic, or that the story isn't marketable, or... something. I search for it every day, trying to find it before it attacks me unawares.
But maybe, a tiny part of my brain whispers, maybe this time it will all work. Maybe this will be an easy book.
Have you ever written an easy book?
