You see, in
So, I put my book aside. And you know what, I'm glad I did. It was just what I needed to get me motivated to get back to my book.
How can that be when you've completely switched gears, you ask? Well, I discovered something. Something I have been reading over, and over, since I put my toe in the writer universe.
Editing is freedom.
The chance to take something, write it quickly, then edit, made me realize that it's okay if my book is crap, expected even. Because editing can take that crap and bring you to world filled with hope. You can take the bad and change it. How powerful! How amazing the tool that writers hold.
Suddenly, I didn't care if I won. I was a better writer because I discovered the joy of editing. It made me so excited that I am ready today to jump back into my book with full throttle. Not even twitter can detour me! I will champion the story, and then I will edit. Then I will be free.
