IWSG


This month I had a whole thing written bemoaning the fact that I'm not achieving, or even shooting for, any writing goals. But after reading it over several times, I decided to be a little more positive. So what if I haven't written anything new in months. I have several short stories that need editing. 90% of writing is editing, right?

So, that's what I'm going to do this month. I'm also going to try to get back into the swing of things regarding blogging/visiting.

That's it. Nothing special. No encouragement for anyone else, because I'm using it all on myself.

  1. You're right that 90% of writing is editing. Sometimes we go through what I call "writing ruts." It happens, but that doesn't mean we aren't creating or working.

    I hope you can get back into the swing of things. :)

  2. Very honest post and I like it! Neither bitching nor stimulating my own insecurity about not producing enough. You're just being a fellow writer having a normal time of it. :) If I were always as productive as I am at my best, I'd be so happy, but unfortunately I have to accept that my ability to write is extremely erratic.

  3. Sounds great! Editing is awesome! It means you finished something and it needs polishing. Congrats! Get to it!
