Hi all and welcome to Raven’s Thursday thoughts.
On the delete button.
That’s right. The button that gets rid of all your hard written words. The one I have used to great effect this week.
You see I have used it a lot this week. Well only once but it deleted a lot. As in I have written 1k and deleted 2.
A few years ago that would have put me into a blue funk. I would have shaken, shrieked and probably moaned and cried.Instead I took it philosophically. It had to be done. Those words were not needed.
I actually didn’t find it hard to do i the end. I knew something was wrong. Then today I accepted the need to get ride of that part of my WIP. It didn’t work.
Whatever anyone says, as an author you know when something is wrong. However much you try to convince yourself it is okay, deep down you know that whatever it is doesn’t work.
So, brace yourself. And delete it.
You know it makes sense. And once you’ve done it for the first time, the next time will be much easier.
And enjoy your writing,
all of it whether you keep it or not,
love, Raven x
