It’s Been a While


I just spent some five hours revising a short story. I got a rejection with a rewrite offer from a publisher a couple months back, so of course I was going to heed their feedback and resubmit.

I just spent five hours writing and revising. Last night I had a muse, took a bunch of notes and went to bed thinking about my story. This morning I woke up and couldn’t wait to get started. Even when I had to take a break to drive somewhere around noonish, the story was stuck in my head. I finished the story. I think it’s much better now that the previous draft I submitted. But even though I’m done with it, it’s still stuck in my head.

I just spent the last five hours writing, and never realized that it’s almost 4pm and I haven’t eaten anything today. Not a crumb. Damn, I’m hungry.

It’s been a long time since I had as good a day of writing as this.

  1. I love days like this. Glad you got one, and that you know to appreciate them. 🙂

      I used to get them a lot. I took a few months off work to write my first book (which I am still struggling to find an agent for). I’ve been working full-time for the past few months and just haven’t had the chance to sink into a story for a while.

  2. Hey!!! I read your story on the Uprising Review. I loved the writing style!!! <3 Congrats.
