Sorry for not posting Wednesday. It was such a crazy, busy day. Life has really been a little overwhelming recently. It was one of those days where you focus on what's not getting done rather than what is. Add to that some discussion about feedback and how it affects our writing in the monthly goals thread at compuserve and then this post here.
Why is it so gosh darn easy to believe all the bad things about us or our writing but not the good? Why focus on what we didn't get done instead of what did? (Not on Wednesday though, because nothing got done. Really.)
Today I declare "Focus on the Good" day! What do you do well in writing? What's one thing of importance you've accomplished? And yes, feeding your family is important, even if that's all you did.
This morning I went to four stores. With two toddlers. We made it home hungry but happy. Doesn't matter that the dishes are waiting or laundry isn't done, that was an accomplishment. And I'm good at dialogue. At least in my later drafts. Nothing's good first draft. So, what about you? What good are you focusing on today?
