My Brain is Tired

Seriously, I’m pretty sure that I have burned out the grammar and spelling part of my brain.

Pshaw, you say, that is impossible.

Here is my reality, I’ve read and re-read my manuscript approximately 150 times looking for stupid mistakes, story inconsistencies, pacing issues and other story killers.  I swear to you, I can’t see them anymore.

I’m pretty sure the hamsters upstairs have dropped dead from the constant revving of the gears.

Every time I look at it, I just want to read it without my critical eye.  When I relax, I still love my story and have been plotting and planning the next book of the series.  At this point I couldn’t tell you what voice I’ve written in, whether or not things are passive or aggressive.

Honestly, I think my brain is dribbling out of my ears.

  • don’t worry…. your friends will help you gather the dribbles, and shove them back into your head (with as little pain as possible… well okay, maybe a little pain!! after all what are friends for? LOL). hang in there mon ami… take a short well deserved rejuvenating break!!

  • I can’t see the errors in my manuscript, either. I know they are there, but I’m so desensitized from being so involved with it I can’t find the mistakes anymore. Just recently I gave my manuscript to two people along with a red pen. I’m sure they’ll make it bleed, but they are able to see things I cannot. 🙂

    • I’m glad I’m not the only one who suffers from the problem. That’s why I love my friends! 🙂
