So far I have made a bit of progress but not much on Emily Swann. The truth is that I hate the editing process sooo much that I find it really hard going. It’s not like doing a first draft which despite my moaning is actually a joy to me. I could write first drafts forever. But having to pick over them feels like dissecting a corpse to me or pulling the wings of flies. It seems so uncreative and clinical that I just hate it! I know its silly but its just how I feel. I edit a paragraph and then give up because I feel I’ve had enough already. At this rate I’ll be ninety by the time I finish Emily Swann!
Have managed to read a poem a day; did that easily. Have blogged everyday as well which is good.
Things I forgot to mention were: 1) commenting and 2) photography. When I first got into this blogging thing I was terribly shy and never commented because I thought no-one would be interested in what I had to say. Have since had this proved to be untrue. Now I try to comment a lot and I always try to say positive stuff. I’m sure we’ve all had enough waspish sarcastic comments to last us a life-time; I know I have.
Also I definitely want to do more photography this year. If I take some good ones I might even post them on this blog. I enjoy photography a lot and did a photography course years ago but since then I just don’t seem to do it except when I’m on holiday so I plan to change that.
