For the last few months, I’ve been trying to find a way to do the things on my Should Do list (like cook and do laundry) and my Wanna Do list (like write and be crafty). I never found a balance or a happy medium. So a few weeks back I decided to edit my story.
Here’s what I learned:
1. I’m not Superwoman, even though I can rock the cape and red boots. I can’t do everything. And I don’t have to. So I’ve cut my Should Do and Wanna Do lists way down.
2. This is my time to sit on the writing bench. I don’t have as much time this school year to write, not like I want to. So I’ll be supporting and cheering on my fellow writers.
3. I’m really a plotter, not panster or a panster with plotter fantasies. So I’ve been plotting the next several scenes in the WIP I was working on. I can’t wait until I have some time to write.
With 2008 coming to an end in a few weeks I encourage you to edit your story so you can start 2009 as James Brown sang, on the good foot.
