I have been toying with a few ideas lately. The more pressing one being…quitting. Only I don’t call it that. I also don’t call it giving up either. No, I rationalize it and say I will take a break that may have no end to it. Nice, Casse, very nice. Stop while you are not ahead. Lol. I mean I could. It would be easy…well, easier than the rejections. Easier than the negative critiques from those who don’t get my work, my humor or what I am trying to do. Yes, it would be easier but then what? I am writer damn it and if I don’t write then what the hell am I? Therefore, I give myself a pep talk that sounds something like this: “Suck it up and stop being such a whiney ass all the time sheesh!” Yeah, I know I totally coddle myself.
Okay, so extended break is out I decided absolutely NO, N-O contest and no sharing my work until I am 100% satisfied unless it’s to my very awesome CPs whom I don’t mind showing my unkempt, unrefined crap too because they are awesome enough to help me clean it up.
Those are my writing resolutions. Glad I could talk myself out of being a quitter.
Keep reading and I will keep writing,
Leave No Stone Unturned
