But it has only been three days. Time moves differently when you’re waiting for feedback. You tell yourself that now would be a good time to take a break, watch some movies, play some video games, but you can’t stop yourself from printing out chapters and marking them up.
Taking breaks is probably a good thing if it fits your process, but the older I get, the more I feel like I MUST take full advantage of the time I have.
10 years ago, I wouldn’t have dreamed of getting into bed at 9p just to make sure I get a full night of rest. Now I sleep when Matador sleeps.
All of this is to say that I can’t wait to hear what people think of the story. My 5 beta fish are really into the Vinestead universe, so my only real goal is to entertain them with more of what they already love.
In the meantime, I guess I’ll just print out some more chapters and grab my red pen.
