Two years ago, I was chatting on line to a friend and she said she admired my ability to skip from genre to genre. At the same time I admitted I admired her ability to stay the course for one book. But, in the back of my mind was always the thought, what would happen to me, if I put all the effort in one book and it bummed?
This last book has been such a book. Over a year in preparation and the works has left me drained. If this sank, I have no idea what it would do to me.
Julia, my editor, says I should put it down for another couple of weeks and come back with a clearer mind. While I know she is right, my concern is if I did that I may never pick it up again.
