Balticon cometh and this year I am not excited. Why? Because I was DE-termined (gotta say it like DEEEEEEEE-termined)…to get my novel edited and walk into Balitcon with the first three chapters ready to shove at anyone that would look at it.
I was ready to lean on the few people I see and interact with every year for a little help along the author highway.
BUT I’m not.
I’m just not.
I can’t beat myself up over that though, I can’t get down in the dumps about it, I can’t get DE-feated (said the same way)…
I can’t because I just don’t have time. If I can’t come to Balticon with the whole thing done, I’m going to at least try to come with the first three chapters done.
That way this year wasn’t a complete waste, although lets be honest 2009 is going down in my book as WORST YEAR EVAH!
