Some writers say the hardest part of writing a novel is starting it.
Not for me.
I do not start until the words, the plot, the characters, all that amounts to a book begins to spill over and cannot be contained.
Starting is easy: I have no choice but to write, I cannot stop it, and so it goes - first draft, second, third and so on. Then comes the point when the creative work is over. At that point I find that all I do is the technical, the polishing, the mundane. That's when I get tired of the novel. That's when I just want to throw it to hell, or I wish it was a team work - one person for the creative part and another to polish it, to bring it to that publishable state.
I think my second novel could use that extra once over, my editor seems to agree, but I am just so tired of it. I don't want to go back to it. I should. I will, but not until the current (3rd) novel is finished.
I have two mundane tasks ahead of me: polishing Novel Nr 2 and Novel Nr 3.
