This phase of the process always terrifies me. Will the story delight or dismay? How much rewrite I’m I looking at here? How much will I need to cut, change, redo? I won’t know until I read it. I have No Time to waste here, so I better stop stalling and take the leap!
Blogging is one of the ways I’m stalling. It’s also a public confession to make me accountable. Now that I’ve confessed I’ve been holding back, unwilling to dive into the printed page, I have nowhere to go but in. I must have the courage of my craft, count to three, and jump.
Today is leap day.
May you have the courage of your craft.
Until next time
