Learning to Listen

I sit down to write, and I hesitate. I know what my outline says is to happen next, but something pulls me back. This has happened before. I figured out later that I was going in the wrong direction. Unfortunately, I don’t always listen to myself, and later end up deleting all that I wrote. […]

The Path Taken

Perfection is the Enemy of Good

We have all heard the saying, “Perfection is the Enemy of Good.” As I work on my edits, that phrase comes to mind. I find myself re-writing the chapter I’m working on. That isn’t necessarily a bad thing, when you write you aren’t editing, you are simply letting creativity flow. When you edit, you are […]
