I've been working on maintaining a writing schedule. It's been over one month now and so far so good. I'm writing everyday and loving it. The change of mindset has helped me tremendously. I'm working on another book about ancient Africa and revisions on the first one.
It's amazing to me the things I thought worked, but really don't. Revising has shown me the difference of how I wrote then and what my work is like now. What's got me worried is if I thought that was good writing, what will I think of how I write today a year from now.
I must continue to remind myself that the important thing is that I grow as a writer. Every story will get better each time I create one, or so it should. At the end of the week, I will print out the revised book and read it through. On the one hand, I am looking forward to seeing what it has become. On the other hand, I'm hoping all of the changes work and that it flows the way it is supposed to.
As the saying goes: the proof is in the pudding. We will see what we will see.
