revision blues

"You’re a poser. You talk the talk but you can’t walk the walk. Thinking isn’t writing, editing isn’t writing, only writing is writing. If you’re not making 1000+ words a day you’re not even trying. You get so little work done it’s embarrassing. A real writer would be finished already: you'll still be messing around this time next year. How are you ever going to be a professional? Nobody wants to work with losers like you. Why do you even call yourself a writer?"

Welcome back, revision blues. :(


  1. See, that's how I feel too *hugs and shares happy chai* How about we take things one at a time, by the way? Remember how it doesn't matter how many words a day you crank out and how writing is more than just coming up with something new and fabricating a flimsy and faulty first draft? Because if it wasn't, I don't think many of the big authors could call themselves writers either so heads up - you'll do great :)

  2. Professionals write well. Professional don't write a book a year because they feel they have to. ;) But I'll admit that that's how I feel too.

    Also, what dystophil said. =P

  3. I feel the same way. I've been working on the same book for a year!! Probably at an average of 10 words a day. But listen Para... we all have our own writing process. You CANNOT blame yourself for being a slow writer. It's just how you, and I, work. You can do this. (:
