Not a whole lot to blog about today in the writerly arena of my life. At least, I say that now. It seems that when I’m done with my musings even when I think there wasn’t much to say, there are more words on the page than I expected.
I’m still in edit mode, revision mode for the short story, specifically. I think I was deluded by a myth. I thought ‘edit’ meant grammar and structure. And of course it does. But it means so much more than that! Sometimes it means rewriting entirely when an ‘edit’ causes domino-like effect throughout the story.
One day I hope to be able to write it right the first time through. But that’s probably the perfectionist in me speaking and the reality will be hopefully at least somewhat better than the present.
So I was right, I didn’t have much musing to do today. I have a list of things I need to do on the non-writerly front though, so I’m heading outside to take care of that now. The weather is beautiful and I’m not complaining.
What’s the rest of your weekend looking like? Do you generally do family and non-writerly things, or are you trying to cram in as much writing on your days off as possible?
