Good Morning, Folks!
I am up, have been for about half an hour now. I have tea, a kitty on my lap (which doesn’t make typing at difficult!), and I’m almost ready to go. It’s my day off so I’m aiming for a productive morning.
Yesterday’s plans changed as I was asked to go into work a couple of hours early, so I didn’t get much worked on. I think I wrote just over 500 words. Today I will get more done. I’ll be writing words but I’m also going to add more notes to my Black Blood master file and I might do a little brainstorming on one of the story rewrites I’m looking at.
I still feel odd about these rewrites. I hate the thought that I’m going to become that writer who works on one story for a decade and never finishes it as they strive for perfection. Nor do I want to become the writer that has twenty stories they’re jumping between looking for that one that will be a silver bullet that everyone will love.
*quick disclaimer, i started writing this post about 8:30am but something came up so i’m finishing it at 10:30am*
I understand there isn’t a silver bullet. There are times where something will look like it’ll come from nowhere but it’s very rare for a writing to hit instant success. It’s a marathon, that has no finishing line. We write and submit/self-pub, and repeat. I can do the writing bit. Now’s the time to finish and submit/self-pub.
