Hey Love Bugs,
If I’m not mistaken this is my second post of the New Year. I’m trying really hard to start posting more. I feel like this is a little bit of an improvement. Maybe not but I’ll have to check my previous stats.
Onto the purpose of this post. REWRITES. I cannot stop rewriting. That may not sound like a bad thing but the problem is my rewrites are happening right in the middle of my first writes. (laugh out loud Yeah I know that made no sense).
I will write a chapter and then the next day I will rewrite it. Like, I will delete it and then rewrite the entire thing. That is a major reason why this book has been postponed.
When I sit down to rewrite I start telling myself not to delete but it is the hardest thing I have ever had to do (not really). The delete button is my best friend. Especially for someone who is a little self conscious about her writing. I’m pretty sure that what I’ve written isn’t horrible but I always believe that it isn’t good enough. I second guess myself every time and then I delete it all and start over.
I don’t know how I can stop doing this.
Any authors out there going through the same thing or have been through the same thing? Any tips on how to get over this hump? I could really use your help. Please leave a comment and let me know what you think.
Until the next time Love, Peace & Chicken Grease
