  • Mood:
I realized why I'm procrastinating too much. You see, I hate editing my own work. When I write, I don't write drafts, I write final copies. I rarely edit my stories unless I feel the urge to. When people critique my stories, I take their comments into consideration the next time I write something (apparently Mary Soon Lee does this too). So instead of just spewing out a crappy draft in a month, I'm toiling over my novel, trying to make everything work out. I should just write a regular draft this time. So what if my story lacks a strong plot and main conflict? So what if my sentences sound strange? I can always go back and edit, though I hate doing it. The main goal is to produce at least 50,000 words, whether the novel is amazing or sucky. I'm not getting very far by trying to skip the drafting process. *sigh* Well, now let's see how chapter 2 goes.

And Leen, I'm sorry I've been acting all jealous lately. I'm really proud of you for finishing your novel in such a short time. I'm just mad at myself for slacking so much, and I take it out on you because you're productive and I wish I could be like that too. You are awesome and I'm just lazy. *hugs*
