Brief note on Battle of the Bands results: I'm going to extend the voting through the 7th (until I go to bed) and post the results on my post for the 8th. If your new year has been anything like mine, you're behind and need the extra time to do things (like vote on blog music battles!).

I haven't been writing.
There, I said it.
On my last pass through my novel, I made a huge change to the beginning, which required much change throughout the rest. And I finished that. Probably two months ago. Then, I read it. After said reading, I wanted to throw my kindle across the room (I read my WiP on my kindle). Every time I make huge changes this story become a rough draft. Again. A very rough draft. I know it needs polishing and love and then I'll be happier with it. At least I hope I'll be happier with it.
Right now I'm not all that happy with it. This novel feels like the story that will never be what I want it to be. And that makes me want to run and hide from it. BTW, I've been doing that successfully for two months now.
The thing is this: I believe that it can be good. Maybe great. (Crossing my fingers on great.) But, it's not going to be anything if I don't knuckle down and work on it.
Anyone else ever feel this way?
