NASHVILLE, TN -
The other day I heard one of my favorite authors say it takes her at least a month to get a seven or eight page story right. Then another writer I like a lot twittered for feedback on the first chapter of his new book. He said he had rewritten the beginning, about five pages, at least fifty times but still didn’t feel good about it.
This helps me. I write and re-write. Let it sit, write some more. Go away, come back, keep a tiny piece and throw the rest away. Edit, refine, sharpen. And still never know if it’s any good.
