I've been working on my epic fantasy for 2.5 years and though I love the story, I see another major re-write staring me in the face. The logical part of my brain understands that this is just the process of perfecting my story, but the impatient side isn't happy. I feel like a contradictory mix of emotion. I love these characters and don't want my time with them to end, but I have other stories and other characters calling to me as well.
I just want my story to be the best it can be. If that means a ton more edits and a couple more re-writes so be it.
But what if I'm over-thinking it? What if I'm being too critical and it doesn't need to be re-written to the level that I'm afraid it might? Ugh, I HATE indecision. I hate being unsure.
I think I need to seriously consider joining Ninja Alex's ISWG.
Is a MS really ever finished?
Are you a part of the ISWG? How long have you been working on your current MS? What's the longest you've spent on one novel?
Anyone else as excited about Game of Thrones Season 3 as I am? Unsure? This should wet your appetite.
