I apologize for not getting a post up on Monday. I had a History exam that I had to study all morning for, and then by the time I got done with it, I was pretty much wiped out. Yay for summer classes. Anyway…
It’s Wednesday, so it’s time to look at another lesson. This week, we’re talking about pushing through.
I know, I’m guilty about not pushing through as much as the next person. Remember that History exam I was talking about and my not being willing to do anything after it? Yeah, I didn’t exactly push through then, did I? Well, I try to most of the time.
There have been times when I just did not feel like writing at all. Not even a little bit. All I really wanted to do was avoid it. Did I? No, but I sure wanted to.
So what did I do? I pushed through. I admit, the writing at that moment doesn’t make any sense. But that’s what editing is for. And that’s a whole different problem…
I’ve been putting off editing for way too long lately. Well, of the manuscripts that I can actually edit right now. There’s one I’m saving up money for an actual editor, but that’s beside the point.
Anyway, there are two that I should be currently editing, but I’ve been putting it off, I admit. I’ll work on them today. At least, that’s the current plan.
So do you push through, or do you avoid writing and editing at all costs when you don’t feel like doing anything? I know what I do… I try to push through.
