I took a couple days off to finish an excerpt from my novel.
It was a difficult excerpt, for a variety of reasons. It took me some places emotionally that I didn't want to go. I'm getting close to the end, which means this will become something that's prone to rejection letters, rather than a concept or something that's hidden in the back of my closet. And it just didn't come as naturally as some of the other portions of the novel. And as I've noted before, I'm a lousy multitasker.
This means I'm not as perfect as I'd like to be. I can only do so much, and can't beat myself up for it. There are worse things in the world than a failure to multitask -- I'm told there was an earthquake in Japan yesterday, and Charlie Sheen is still Charlie Sheen, and there is still strife and corruption across the world.
All I can do is keep trying to the best of my abilities. I'll try and make up for the lost blog day at some point in the future.
