Page a Day: January 11th, 2015

This is my first cheat. I’m making a record of it, but I don’t feel bad about it.

I let Page a Day slip for four days in a row, so now I’m going back and catching up on the day’s events for the last few days. The thoughts won’t be as fresh, not as “in the moment.” But more important to me than that, is having a record of what I’ve been getting up to. In fact, these next four days of entries will provide valuable insight into what I remember from those days—and therefore what I consider the most important.

So “today” I completed writing the final chapter of Mystic. I tried getting the editing done too, but I was simply too exhausted. There’s something very tiring about finishing a book—and I don’t mean the whole process of writing. I mean finishing it takes a lot out of you. You’ve been progressing on one line of action so long, and then all of a sudden…it’s done. Mentally, it can leave you wondering what to do and feeling lost. At least that’s how it is for me.

Well, “tomorrow” I’ll wrap up the edits and Mystic will be complete. At least I already know what to do next.
