My roommate was going to be a book editor for a future job so she's offered to look over my novel so far for me to see if it's going smoothly and making sense. But for that to happen, she's obviously going to have to read it. I get very anxious when people try to read my work unless it's a paper for school or a short story or poem. Well, even for the short stories I get nervous when they read it.
So once I hit my word mark tonight which is 13,333 words, I'll be sending it to her, hopefully getting some positive feedback. I have many worries about my work so far that I have so many excuses for that personally I hope is just the perfectionist in me seeing and isn't completely apparent right now.
But good news, today, I wasn't upset about having to write. It may be because I stopped writing right before a dream sequence and those seem to be my favorite to write. Those and the death scenes. So hopefully, it's not just that. I'm hoping I've gotten over that initial hump of not wanting to commit that I've experienced with nearly all of my other novels I've attempted to write.
Here's a song that I keep listening to that keeps giving me different perspectives on the main characters development.
