I hate Oh um moments. You know the time when a friends says "Oh, um", when you ask if they like what they read of your work, or what they thought of your work.
The Oh um moment when you are reading a book, a good story and it has a storyline that is close to the one you are writing. You know it is your own work, but this author has written it in her own words...or vice versa, you are writing her work in yours.
The Oh um moment when you wipe out two chapters and cannot retrieve them.
The Oh um moment when someone asks what you do for a living, you know..."Oh um I am a writer".
The Oh um moment when you read your manuscript and you have put mother and son in bed together!
The Oh um moment when you have finished the said manuscript and it is editing time! OH UM...
The Oh Um time when the words just will not flow...
I have had a few Oh um moments this week, but am pleased to say that I am turning them around and moving forward. I have April in my sights for finishing...Oh Um it is nearly March!
What has been your Oh Um this week?
