A Marathon, Not a Sprint
Writing takes imagination, organization, and determination to do it well. There is the initial rush of an idea, a concept, and then there is the deliberate execution, and then there is the polishing the requisite number of times to make it shine. If you write cleanly, and have honed your craft, the rewrites are not insufferable. In fact, they’re that one last opportunity to make good better. Some folks are happy with good enough, however, and that’s not where you want to be. While I, for one, appreciate the economic pressures of the real world, things take time, and it is can be folly to rush things.
I feel the sting of missing deadlines, yet I cleave closely to the fact quality will out. I’ve been pouring a lot of thought and research into all the projects I’ve been drafting, and can only hope to talk about them more in the very near future. Suffice to say, while tremulus occupies the vast portion of my days, my mind wanders in the off hours to other applications of Haiku, and future expansions of Agents of Oblivion.
Until next time, I bid you, dear reader, adieu!
