Progress on the Edits...

I think I do my best work under pressure.  I know I did in high school (what I remember of that), in college, and at my normal job when I had one.  I don't like to fail.  Nothing is more motivating to me. 

Today I was able to finalize the edits to the first two chapters of the final section of my novel.  I sliced the novel into thirds to make it manageable.  I thought this section was going to be the easiest, but it's been a rough day for sure. 

I also marked up the edits to several other chapters, so I have work to finish later tonight or tomorrow. 

My kids and my back are telling me it's time to stop for the day.  Right now.  So I clock out.

  1. I'm excited that you were able to accomplish so much! You really are great under pressure! Now it's time to try to relax and take care of yourself for awhile. But I have a feeling you won't be down for long! Julie

  4. I do better work under pressure. At least, I work faster.

    Best to you on NaNo! You can do it Tonja! I'm rooting for you.

  5. Good point, maybe it is just faster work, not necessarily better. :) Thanks!
