I think in most ways, I’ve become a better writer. Even if at only the level of “I finish what I start.” But I need to send the Sue project out. And I’m dreading it. Just going to be months of rejection. And yet, you only get acceptance through rejection.
Still, I can’t make a summary of the story work for me. Nothing I write gets at what I think is the charm of the story–this sprawling weird layering of tales and ghosts and history. Instead, it all sounds like some kind of YA adventure.
So, I’m a little bummed. And struggling.
