I think I posted something last week about being close to ready to query my WIP. That seems so long ago. Since then I’ve cut another 3500 words, including my favorite scene. I’ve felt like it needed to go for a while, but I was clinging to the delusion that the book needed it. It didn’t. So sad. :,(
The closer I get to my completion date goal, the less I feel like it’s ready. I know I’m totally psyching myself out, but I don’t really know how to get around it. Sometimes I think I just need to jump, and deal with the consequences, but what if I blow my chances by jumping in too soon? I’m totally overanalyzing everything, and it’s making me absolutely crazy.
Maybe by this time next week, my first batch of queries will be out the door or out the virtual door at least, and I’ll feel like I’m moving forward instead of backward. Maybe my head will be spinning. Either way, something will be happening. Progress is progress, regardless. Right?
