These thoughts remind me of my writing process...the dance between the draft and the revision processes. Both have qualities I loathe...both have things I crave.
With drafting, I love the freedom to just write, unedited...to create something - without rules, without worries. With revisions, I get the structure I also crave. The ability to mold and shape the mess I drafted into something more than what it was originally.
In reflecting about this I realize, I actually need both aspects of the creative process. Crave them both.
For a long time I resisted the drafting part. My CPs have heard me angst more than once. But as I think more about it, I realize there is so much to both aspects of creating - of writing - that I love. I just need to accept the processes for what they are and stop trying to make them something else. Drafting is not editing. And revising is not drafting. They both have their own purpose. And I need/want/crave them both.
What about you? How are you after the Holidays as you get back tot he routines of life?
I am working on a schedule for the blog and should have something in a few days. In the meantime, be on the look out for more exciting news SOON!!!
