I’m willing to share my feelings on those questions. When I’m told to “fix” my work it is not empowering – it is terrifying. There is a reason I have dozens of completed drafts and not a single one of them is publishable. It is my plan to start writing full time in September (when my daughter goes to college). My hope is to have time to work at it and focus on it and someday write books as fantastic as those I love to read. But I am afraid that I am more of a daydreamer and storyteller and not good enough to be a real writer capable of “fixing it”. I love writing. Rewriting is fun and rewarding. Perfecting it or fixing it? That’s the part I fail miserably at.
