And we feel like this:
Quita has really good excuses for why she hasn't gotten to it. She's taking like 50 history classes right now along with her creative writing classes. Not to mention she's teaching full-time.
And my excuses are almost as good as her--but the truth is, I'm kind of still in love with my ex.
I'm not talking about all of the outstanding men I've date (cough-yeah right-cough), but I mean Wants, my first YA manuscript. I took some time away from it over the summer to "see other people," and everything was great for a while. I started getting a new crush and it was so much to see where the relationship was heading...
But then I started submitted chapters of Wants to my writing workshops. And then I reread an email from an agent that requested a "revision and resubmit." And before I knew it, Wants sucked me right back in and now I'm completely obsessed. It's my first true love, and I truly believe the more I go back to it, the more better "we" can become.
Has that ever happened to any of you? Have you tried to take time away from a project but absence only made the heart grow fonder?
