I submitted my second novel to my agent and have just received feedback. Most of the things I actually recognised as problems when completing draft, there's just a point that you get to where it's all about the finish line and you actually get sick of the darn book. So it was good to have a break and develop some perspective while my agent was reading it.
Although I find it so surprising about how each time I have to revise, there is this feel of dread. Even though I love revising my novel and adding layers and depth and making it the best I want it to be, there just this initial feeling of 'where do I begin' that paralyses me. In the end I tricked myself by sitting in front of the television while revising so that it didn't feel like I was really doing work.
So now to finish it and off to the publisher it goes. Can't wait.
