Pondering the Week Ahead

           This week, I will be continuing my reflections on the
           revision process and how important it is to take the
           time to enjoy the process of revision.
          
           I struggle so much with that in my own writing. We
           all want quick fixes in life, and the same seems to carry
           through to our writing life. But that isn’t necessary.
           What we really need is to enjoy writing, regardless of
           whether it is first draft writing or revision. We just have
           the ENJOY THE WHOLE PROCESS.
          
           And that is so difficult sometimes. It is especially
           difficult for new writers who are trying SO HARD to
           get published. Meanwhile, it seems to take SO LONG to
           become published. It can become really, really
           overwhelming.
          
           Try to be kind to yourself whether you are a
           beginning writer or a mature writer. Know that writing
           is hard work and that it is important to take your time
           and to ease yourself into this world. Once you relax,
           you will have a lot more luck and a lot more peace of
           mind.
          
           Take care fellow writers and have a great week!
