Yeah, I kind of had a writerly melt down the other day. It was bad. I texted Sarcastically Delicious (aka huzband) and said, I quit. And then he so wisely reminded me that if I love to write then I should continue writing--that's all that matters. And he's right.
And then one of my best friend's texted me and told me I was her hero and not to give up. And I about wanted to cry.
I knew I didn't really want to quit writing. I was just frustrated.
But sometimes I just get caught up in all of the...stuff. You know what I'm talking about. The stuff that comes with trying to make it as a writer in the big vast world of publishing. I think I was barely keeping my head above water and then I made a mistake with my WIP. I had forgotten about this new plot point that I had added. It was a very much needed plot point. But then, I had forgotten that I had added it and didn't remember it until about 10,000 words later.
I've got to go back and fix everything.
And I don't know why just this little thing got to me so much, because I don't mind revising or rewriting in the least bit. But, just with everything else; it was the straw that broke the camel's back (or knocked Anita off the camel and made her fall into a pile of camel poo.)
So I'm going to take a break from writing for a few days. Read some. Waste some time watching television. Learn how to do the Purl stitch finally so all my knitting doesn't just consist of one stitch, LOL.
I wish everyone a happy week!
