Nine more pages this morning was all it took to wind up the draft of Traveling Girl. As every writer knows, this isn’t the end. Far from it. But it’s enough for now. I feel like I can take a break from this book. Nothing is pressuring me to complete a revision, at least not yet. As soon as someone makes an offer on Gypsy, that will change.
My main concern now is why it’s taking so long to place Gypsy. But I’m going to take a short break from worrying about that, too. Then I will get to the bottom of what I need to do next in the business part of writing and getting published.
