I had told the agent that I expected to have the "second edit" of my first novel done by January.
This was last August. Broken promises seem to come naturally to a recovering politican.
I've moved the crossbar back to late February. When told, if the agent's enthusiasm flagged, she hid it well. Probably has had a lot of practice.
I've now got ten weeks to work. If I could only rent a cabin somewhere, perhaps in Paradise Valley, south of Livingston, I feel sure that--absent the comforts of home--I could pull this off.
I should stop dreaming and suck it up. The answer is to be found inside me, not in some distant hideaway.
