Last week, I decided I needed to reread and re-edit my MS up to the latest chapter, because I got a bit lost. I regarded this as backtracking, as a failure. But now that I’m being a little kinder to myself, I realize it’s a natural part of my process. I reminded myself that I’ve written and released 7+ books using this method and that it’s not a failure not to work perfectly linearly.
I have a bad habit of employing stupidly high standards for my own process, and I’m over it. So, this year I will release a novella and one novel using my natural method of writing and damn it, I’m going to make myself be okay with that.
Hope it was okay to rant. I really needed to get that out of my system.
Wishing you all peace and creativity.
