I wrote my rough draft in two months this past fall. Somehow I had this idea that my rewrite would happen quickly, too. Now this rewrite is a COMPLETE rewrite. I am writing the book again from scratch...and being much less sloppy about it...and feeling discouraged at how slow the process is.
I did have a second child in between drafts one and two, but it's not so much the time I lack, although I wish I had more. I put in an hour or two of writing every night after my children are asleep, but I may get a page or a paragraph or a sentence. (Usually it's a REALLY good sentence.)
And after a few months of writing this way, I only have about a quarter of my book. Writing can be just little discouraging, as I'm sure you all know. I mean, you never really get how hard writing is until you are there. It's hard! And time consuming! If I worked as a nurse during all the hours I have put toward writing, I'd have much neater things.
So if you would please send me some of your productivity. Just enough that you won't miss. I'd be very grateful.
