I’m at the start of something like a self-imposed retreat from writing chatter. I have read and read and searched and read about success, and process (foolish me), and milestones, “what worked for me”, the agent hunt, etc. I’m all filled up, re-remembering the good and dismissing the unhelpful.
It was a good, somewhat useful diversion. But now I return to the point: the writing. I’m retreating into the next draft of my novel. Others might be able to juggle the external and the internal more successfully, but I can’t, and I’m tired of trying.
To the pages, and I’ll be back once I’ve got something fit for human consumption.

Bon voyage, mon amie ! 🙂
Tack så mycket, kompis!
I’m ambivalent about “expert” advice to say the least. Good luck with your next draft.
Thanks. And I’d say “ambivalent” is putting it kindly, to say the least. Nose to the grindstone.
Good luck, I look forward to your return.
