  2. The Cranky; well done. I've never got past the short pieces I do for "Words for Wednesday".
    Editing and re-writing is something I'm not sure I could do. I really admire those who can and then get published.

    1. Andrew; and for those who send emails. Oh, and regular snail mail letters too. I often get letters from my sister that are seven pages long (A4 pages) because she keeps repeating herself on each page, just rearranges the words.

    2. River, sounds a bit like my mother's letters.

  5. How true it is. And perfection is a myth. Like you, I admire and respect writers though. For their craft and their determination.

  6. I feel like that a lot of the time. If I can get as far as putting down my ideas then I can go back and perfect it. (or try to at least)

    1. Cheryl; I used to have pages and pages of ideas that were so old the bible looked fresh and new against them, so out they went. But I do print and keep my Friday stories, for future reference. Now and again I'm able to add a chapter to one or more of them.

    1. Merle; probably just picking up a pencil might help and a nice new empty notebook.

  10. Even just a few sentences for the blog requires that first draft.
