And that thought is what's keeping me going right now as I edit. I began my editing on Monday and well, let's say that I am not very pleased. I was bored and I wrote the darn book! BUT, it is okay because I can fix it and when I am done editing it, it will be ten times better and that can be said for every time I edit it. ..
I have the original version, hand written and horrible. I mean if I think this version is bad all I have to do is read the original and I will look at the newest version and in comparison it's a master piece!!
So, when you look at your work and want to cry because you cannot believe that it is so horrible for whatever reason, just know that you can only learn from your mistakes now, so that on your next piece of work, you won't have to work so hard because you will already be that much farther ahead with your knowledge. And also remember that while it would be nice to write something as big is Harry Potter or Twilight, it's not about how fast you get there, or what's waiting on the other side. . .it's the climb. . .
*I am not a fan of Hannah Montana or Miley Cyrus but I found the song touching in the sense that it was something every writer should know about writing. So now, Enjoy the things you write because one day you'll realize that even if it was horrible once you finished , once upon a time while you were writing the piece it made you smile!
And with that, I am back to Climbing!
