First of all, thanks to everyone who commented on my last post. I really appreciate all of your suggestions and encouragement.
Remember last week how I said I had to cut 2K some-odd words and it was like the worst thing ever? Well that very same day, Natalie Whipple did a great post on editing, or thinning the crop, that really put things back into perspective. Always superb writing advice, that girl has.
Our pal Maleah over at Smashing Stories talks about the benefits of hitching well-broke horses to your wagon instead of a herd of wild buffalo. How's that for a metaphor?
Finally, the dude behind How Not to Write details in 6 easy steps how to get back to writing after an absence. So far, I've mastered purging and stopping. I'm working on showing up. I should be back to actual writing sometime before Labor Day.
Have you ever noticed how the Universe sometimes puts certain things in your way just when you most need them? Because these posts all covered stuff that I happen to be struggling with right now. It's nice and all, but seriously Universe! Quit reading my mind. It's getting creepy.
