It is the beginning of the year, and I had hoped by this time to be completed with my fourth novel.
I just hit the half-way mark!
The first two were finished so fast. But I should have known when it took me a full year for the third one that my appearances and crazy schedule would intrude on my writing time. Plus having another person in this house, and two psychotic new kittens, has altered my available time as well.
So I'll just have to readjust my time frame. If it's done by June 1st, that still gives my editor time for review and me time for rewrites. It'll be okay!
Time to refocus and set a new deadline!
There are no such things as unrealistic goals, only unrealistic time frames.
