Well, this starting back to school thing hadn’t started when I put so much on my calendar. Something had to give – art and writing. That should end in a few days.
Next story is tumbling around in my head as well. This is getting to be fun! Making notes and trying to figure out exactly what type of format this tale will be told.
Trial and error, that part of writing that seems to take the longest. Rough draft, edit and rewrite, those words have become routine. Something that several years ago were the scariest ideas ever.
Somewhere, somehow, someway the idea of writing had become this vision of sitting down and writing perfect prose at one sitting. This followed by a quick edit and a rewrite, give it a few days and then polish look through – DONE!
Um. WRONG! Sometimes it does work that way, but not always. That, in my mind meant that I wasn’t a writer, good or not. That has changed over the years.
Somethings take practice. They take work. They take time.
