What are you doing with your long weekend?
This morning I’ve relished in ticking things off my list of things to do. I always love that.
I’ve also given myself a little instant gratification. This short story I’ve been working on is wearing me down because it seems to be taking a lot of work to get polished to a point where I’m ready to submit.
So I pulled my first draft file and read over the first page. Then I pulled my current first page. Wow. Huge difference between start and finish. Seeing the improvement made me realize that yes, it really has been worth the effort.
Now I can get back to work on the rest of the edits with a renewed sense of purpose.
Have you ever done that? If not, try it next time you’re feeling whipped by your wip. It’ll make you feel better quick!
