How is it possible that this year—this wonderful, unbelievable year of gifts and firsts—is halfway through?! I can't believe it.
I'll save all the reminiscing for New Year's Eve; instead, I'm reflecting on the stuff that I didn't get gone. Ugh, that doesn't sound very positive, but it's not that bad, I swear.
I'm behind schedule on writing The Back Up. I'm currently rewriting the beginning... for the third time. Sigh. I wish that I could be the kind of writer who plows through a first draft and goes through a couple rounds of editing and rewrites. But I just can't. It's definitely a flaw I tried to work on. Instead, I agonize over the words as I write them, deleting and rearranging and rewriting as I go. That's why I'm stuck back at the beginning.
On top of that, June has been a very busy month, loaded with distractions and diversions. Oh yeah, have I mentioned Pinterest? Oh, the pictures! I'm late to the game, but feel free to check out my boards if you're into that sort of thing.
Meanwhile, I'm setting new goals for myself for July to help me get back on track—at least as far as the writing goes. And hopefully the rest will fall in place. 2014 may be half over, but there's still six months of surprises left!
