I'm in the middle of revisions right now, so my brain is mush and I find myself thinking things like "You know, I've never cleaned out the hall closet! Maybe I should go do that!" because I desperately want to not have to read what I've written. Justine Larbalestier has a great blog post that sums up what I'm feeling right now, actually, and it is--naturally--far more eloquent about the whole thing than yours truly can ever hope to be.

Tell me about it (revisions). Rewriting is the best part of writing...at least, until you actually have to sit down and do it.
Let's be honest, the best part of writing is being done!
