Strange things are afoot at the Circle-K...

The end of the paper edits are so close.

But, I seem to have a problem.

I mean, I was on a roll. Each day I would pick up those papers and edit, edit, edit until I could edit no further and then I would transfer all those edits into the computer and make the story shine.

Now, I have but a few pages to go and I'm at a standstill.

I look at those papers and suddenly I have something much more important to do.

Like laundry.

What I don't know is if its because I'm apprehensive about writing what comes next or if I actually don't like the last part and need to rewrite it.

At least I recognize it as something my brain is trying to tell me is wrong except this time I'm not sure WHICH thing.

Here's hoping that I figure it out before I blow a blood vessel!

Have you signed up for the Blogging from A to Z Challenge yet? They are doing a big push to get 1000 followers before March 1st. They're already at 765! It's going to be fantastic! They now have a Facebook page and they are on Twitter! Come join the fun and meet some new friends!


  1. Thanks for the plug for the Challenge!
    At least you know something is amiss. Just let it sit a while - it will come to you.

  2. Are you feeling some trepidation at being almost finished with editing because that means you have to move on to the next step, which is a step closer to submitting which is a step closer to putting the process in someone else's control?

    Yoooo can dooo eeeet!!

    Keep moving forward!

  3. i am the opposite, i rish through the end because, 1) its the climax and 2) must get it over with already!

    you can do it!

    and the a to z fest will be excellent, dude!

  4. I have the same problem. I drag my feet when I come to crucial parts of my manuscripts--especially the endings. So you're not alone.

    I'm signed up for A to Z. I had no idea they were on Twitter and FB. Thanks for the info!

  5. Alex - From your lips to my muse's ears!

    K. - I hope you didn't hit the nail on the head this time. I don't want to shoot myself in the foot this time.

    Tara - That's my problem. I don't know the ending till I write it. I don't know what's going to happen. I think that scares the crap out of me.

    Susan - I'm glad I'm not alone but it does make for some nervous days.

    Thanks for stopping in.
