I was really struck by something Jessica over at BookEnds had to say today (in a post about something completely different):

Trying, no matter whether you achieve the results you thought you wanted, is never a mistake.

Sometimes I find myself wondering if I'm making a big mistake, if five years from now I'll have to give up on writing and realize how much time I wasted on something that didn't pan out. But she's right, trying is never a mistake. The mistake would be if I didn't try, and always wondered.


I love your blog! Thanks for reminding me of just how excruciating that first draft is, that the obstacles can indeed be overcome. You're way ahead of the pack because you've already admitted there are problems AND identified them. Keep going,you're on yourway.
