Anybody who writes consistently knows how dangerous falling in love with your work can be. It's like being in an intense relationship, and you have to be careful the one you love isn't an asshole. Or else, you could lose objectivity.
Still, I am loving the direction the draft is taking, and I finally think I will be done by December 2017. I am at 188 pages right now and hope for 300, minimum.
My short story collection Down South Where the Water is Warm is finally getting revised, thanks to the excellent editorial comments from Adam Gottlieb, who is a fantastic song writer and singer. You can check out his song here: itunes.apple.com/us/album/revolution-blues-single/id1268982131 The harmonica is intense, too.
Anyway, stay tuned! Keep writing or loving your art.
Love your work, but get some distance to improve it. #Resist!
