Emotional Stages of Writing a Novel

~~If you haven't figured it out by now, I'll let you in on a little secret...
I'm bogged down at the moment. Too much to do and too little energy make me very bad at connecting with all the lovely writers in the Campaign. I really planned to get to at all my groups at least once a week. I'm not doing so well at that. So, I'll give you a lovely little clip to watch--The Emotional Stages of Writing a Novel. Enjoy! ; )


  1. Funny! but I expected something after editing. Please tell me there's something after editing!!!

  2. Ha! You'd think there would be beta reading, revision, professional editing, revision, query, agent, revision, pubulisher, revision...LOL! It's endless, isn't it?

  3. I was hoping for something along the lines of Major Book Deal- Lots of Money. You know, something to give me hope.

  4. LOL! Yeah, we can hope, can't we? ; )

  5. I know exactly what you mean. I have so many things to catch up many things to do and so little time!!!

  6. This week seems to be a bad one all around. I had lots of copy editing/beta reading to do, so that was my excuse for putting my own novel aside! A relaxing excuse :-)

  7. Hello,

    I'm in your contemprary fiction group so I thought I'd drop by and say hello (I'm a bit behind too). Now following! Hope you get a chance to visit my blog sometime.

  8. This video just about sums up the whole process of writing that manuscript. It's cheered me up a bit (in the process of editing!)

  9. Deniz,
    You don't have excuses, you have legitimate writing tasks. ; )

    Hi, Mood and Alli,
    Thanks for dropping by. I'm glad the clip helped. I needed it. ; )

  10. Fun clip. I feel your drain. I have been so sapped of energy lately and sometimes don't know where to start or where to go next.
    Hang in there!

  11. You, too, Lee. We writers have to stick together. ; )
