Last month, after butchering my last draft of my book, I decided that it was time for a mini break from working on my book. It was definitely harder than I thought it would be. There were times that I would be home thinking that I needed to be working on a few chapters while things were quiet or if I was wide awake after taking a very unnecessary long nap after working. I would even opened it up while I was at work while I was waiting on one document before I could call it a day after everyone else left to avoid being royally pissed off that I was still there. In the back of my mind, I knew this was going against the promise that I made to myself to take a break, so I quickly closed it.
During this time, I felt like I had abandoned my "child" when it needed me. Maybe that was the whole point of the break though.
So, now that my mini hiatus is over, the plan is to read through it before I do any cutting and rewriting. It's good to be back though.
