*That's my awesome husband, daughter and son in the first two cars!*
I've been away from my revisions way too long. But, I'm gearing up, TODAY--TODAY--to jump back in. I'm facing the sky as I click slowly up to the top of the hill. Click. Click. Click. Think. Think. Think. Think about revisions, about opening up that document, about re-reading where I left off. About revising. Think. Think. Think.
Who's along this roller coaster ride with me? My husband, giving me support, and room to write--he is the rail that keeps me airborn. My crit partner Robert, whom I am going to see IRL SOON, is the seatbelt that keeps me in the ride. Without his early confidence, it would be a completely different ride.
My daily meetings with my coworker Tina keeps my train on the rails, as does chatting with my other coworker Jon. Last week I met Kris for caramel apple cider (yum), and that added speed to my chugging up the hill. Thanks Kris!! Kris is thoughtful and kind, and down to earth--we had a fantastic time talking about writing and books and everything!
All the unpluggers at Tina's The Practice Room give me support in real time--which is invaluable. Thanks practice roomers! (Oh, and if there is anyone out there who is scared of the practice room--give it a whirl. It's an incredible tool.)
And when I need to tighten the bolts, I turn to all you and your fabulous blogs. To give me food for thought and laughs.
And places like WriteOnCon, (go over today for EPIC giveaways!!) and the Blueboards. A lovely collection of people!
Who knew it would take so much to keep me on the rails?? So, if this post seems disgustingly sweet, well, sometimes you just have to say thanks. So THANKS!!
What are you up to this week? Any goals? What kind of roller coaster ride are you on right now? Who keeps you on the rails?
And, if you're having one of those days--remember the most famous train of all: I think I can. I think I can. I think I can.
