This week I'm celebrating:
I'm churning out the rough draft of the 5 final chapters of my WIP, Bloodwalker. Woohoo!! I finished 3 chapters since Tuesday, and today and tomorrow, I'll be writing the final 2 chapters.
What does this have to do with the funny pics above? When I finish a rough draft of action scenes with exciting cliffhangers, I get so excited! I feel like I just lived it! But that's the rough draft. If I look at the chapter in the cold light of day, I'm stunned by what a giant pile of poo it is, and how much revising it needs. Which is why I'm finishing all 5 chapters before taking a hard look and doing revisions. ('Cause it ain't gonna be pretty...)
Do you ever finish a project or take a picture you're totally sure is awesome, but in the cold light of the next day, find something completely different?
