I needed a win this week. I’m in a bit of a rough patch.
Rewrites are not going well at all. I’m experiencing a love-hate relationship with my novel. I vacillate between thinking this book might be my big break and feeling like I should scrap the whole thing before I embarrass myself at the beta-read stage. Stuff is not so great at work, either.

Thanks, Universe! I needed this!
