So I put the manuscript down for a couple of weeks and used my writing/editing time to learn more about social media. I learned just enough to learn that I need to learn more. But the truth is, the two weeks away from the book was the best thing. Old ideas fell away, fresh ideas seemed worth considering, and I saw for myself holes that needed filling that I would not have seen otherwise. The worst thing: the line editing I’ve been doing this past week. I am an editor by trade and I love what I do but man, editing large manuscripts, especially of your own work, is a dreadful experience. But it’s all a part of the journey, isn’t it?
