Dry November: Day 26

November 26, 2019

In an unexpected turn of events I’m going to How to Change the World on Thursday. Will post about that on Friday.

Today I began, after a three month break, re-reading the novel I’ve been writing this year. It was daunting to start. But the bad parts are not as bad as I’d feared, and the good parts are better than I’d remembered. Negativity bias in action no doubt.

I’ve still got a few hundred pages to go, but I’m feeling better than the dread I had before beginning. I’m sure there’s a lesson in there. But the break has also allowed me to look at it with fresh eyes.
