Liberate Yourself

am - john green

This sums up my motto for the coming months.  It’s so much easier to create, especially as a writer, if I allow myself the chance to muck it up, be awful, get out that terrible first, second, third draft, throw it away, stomp my feet, slam doors, hit delete, delete, delete and sit down and start over again.

I’m working on pieces for submission.  Some of them are going well, flowing on the page, needing little tending.  Other pieces are stressing me out so much I’m forced to walk away out of frustration.  This quote talks me off the cliff, so to speak, and I’m able to see my writing for what it is; a work in progress.
