New novel – yesss, I have a fantastic idea.
Er- what happens next?
This idea sucks.
Oh God, I hate it, I shouldn’t have written this in the first place.
This was a terrible mistake.
Oh, maybe it isn’t so bad.
I could work with that.
I need to rewrite this chapter for the 15th time.
It’s the worst thing I’ve ever written.
Just get to the end.
Actually, it’s not too bad.
Die, book, die. Delete it all!
No, I can rescue this.
OMG, I did it. I finished my book.
I’m sure we can all relate to this process. At the moment (about 2 chapters from the end of my WIP), I think I’m at the “Die, book, die” stage!
