SOMETIMES my fingers fly over the keyboard and, voilà, a publishable article. But sometimes the process is like pulling teeth.
The article I’m working on right now is of the latter sort. I am 20+ hours into it and have completed but three short paragraphs. Which I will almost certainly rewrite.
I plug away because, having done this before, I know that great satisfaction awaits me upon completion, at that blessed moment when I read it through and say, “This works.”
... where I share thoughts about writing. I don’t consider myself a writing authority, but that doesn’t keep me from presuming to blog like one. Oh, and I reserve the right to digress when I feel like it.
