It has occurred to me that I can not finish my next book while at home. The endless noise, questions, stares, and distractions make this a near impossibility. But, Tania, you wrote 95% of the book at home, so what’s your problem, you ask?
Answer: Although the beginning and middle are all great, I think the end deserves a special kind of finesse and must be done with tact. It is hard for me to wrap my head around this concept with so much going on around me all the time. Did I mention before that my home was a hostile? Okay, not really. I love my family, but it’s time for the big escape to finish this book without any distractions.
My plan: The mission I have accepted is to spend four days in beautiful Las Vegas at a wonderful resort courtesy of my expiring timeshare. Each day I will wake-up and spend my time divulged into finish the book. I have 2 days to do this. TWO! The next two days will be spent on doing a quick go over, before submitting it for editing.
12 pm: snacks, smoothies, nurishment
1 pm: reading (for http://www.WritingApocalypse.com books for review)
2:30pm: more writing
6:30pm: poolside reading for reviews
7:30pm: more writing
9pm: frozen cucumber slices on my eyeballs because they are going to hurt
Goal: Finish writing and first round editing
Milestone: I’ll be ecstatic if I just finish the book!
If anyone is in the Las Vegas area and wold like to meet for coffee, tea, lunch, or dinner let me know. It would be nice to mingle with some authors during my tentative breaks. I’ll be there early April
