Optimism is NOT Arrogance

Arrogance is the belief that you are BETTER than others. Optimism is the belief that you have the same CHANCE as others. We all have the chance to achieve our dreams. Don't ever let anyone tell you differently.

Been a busy week.

Productive, which is good.  Nearing 8500 words, and my characters are getting a lot of crap thrown their way, which is the way it's supposed to be.  This time around, for the first draft, I'm just writing.  I may end up at 65k words, a ton of misspellings, and some places that don't make sense, but at least it'll be done.  

Then the real writing begins.

I tell my daughters that all the time.  The first draft of a book should be flown through like a jet at Mach 5.  Just don't expect it to be done.  Writing is re-writing as someone once said.  If you go into that knowing your first draft is basically just a pencil sketch, you'll be much more acceptable of the prk the second through tenth drafts will take.

But write on.  Always write on.
