A Revision Haze

My son made this battle scene over April vacation.  Must admit, I kind of love it.  It’s exactly where I am after a very long two of weeks of flu symptoms being passed on from one family member to the next, like an evil game of  tag.

“You’re it!”

My littlest bean suffered from a concussion and to heal she created a hovel on the middle of the dining room floor (Yes, she does respond to her new nickname, Troll) with books and water and audio stories on CD’s.   She spent five days down there.  Hanging out. Napping.  It’s starting to look very appealing that hovel.  I might need to crawl in.

In the middle of all this, I’m revising.  The thing is that I’m always revising.  I’m the revisor who calls, “Wolf.”  At this point, I’m not even sure that anyone believes that I have this manuscript.  It’s true.  I. Can’t. Stop. Touching. It.

Writing is a battle of ideas and wills.  It’s so fun.  It’s so incredibly difficult. Is the novel getting better?  I’d hope so.  Yet, I am so far into this battle I honestly have no idea.  It’s such an odd place to be.

How’re you?

    Julie – so sorry to hear about the concussion….take it slow and easy on any ‘brain tasks’ for her for a while…..don’t underestimate the amount of time it takes to heal the brain properly. I’m sure you’ve heard this from all the docs, just an issue I am keenly aware of as we’ve been through a major brain injury with my dad…..(created a lot of research issues where I also learned about concussions)….OH and love Jack’s battle scene! resembles a lego style one in Keenan’s room :)
