This time has just flown by. During that time, I have been extremely busy. I had two rounds of edits to do, and then a surprise third round. I also have begun going through all my work – the two finished pieces, and mulling around on two of the WIPs – with the “comb” I picked up at the conference.
I know my writing has gotten better over the years. But it’s amazing to me to learn that there is indeed so much more to learn. Just when I think I might have gotten it right, LOL. Talk with someone in the business, and I am wrong.
That’s okay. I love that I am learning better ways to practice my craft. I’ve taken some pretty big criticisms about how I write (too wordy, too much telling). I tend to be kind of formal when I write. I like how it reads, but then I read it out loud, and I don’t like it as much. These are all things that need to be addressed.
I will say that I have taken it easy the last four or five days. I got my stuff in on deadline, and had some time to take care of me. Which is good.
So back to the chore list. It’s late, and I have to get to bed. I have time with no one in the house tomorrow after I get off work, so I want to get the busy work out of the way so that I can write, and fiddle around with my work, and not be interrupted. The thought is intoxicating.
