This is a good thing.
Revisions can only make the manuscript better. Stronger.
This past weekend, I took a break from revisions and watched Wizard of Oz. I absolutely love this movie. If ever you need a pick me up, watch it. Belting out Over the Rainbow always makes me feel better. It dawned on me that I can apply so much of this movie to my writing.
From Dorthy, I learn determination and strength and to never give up.
The Tin Man inspires me to listen and trust my heart.
The Cowardly Lion teaches me to have courage. Be brave. Put myself out there.
And the Scarecrow reminds me I have a brain, use it. Make smart decisions.
If you are deep in revisions or working on a draft, have faith in yourself, your work. Keep at it. Don't give up.
Now, it's time for me to slide into my ruby slippers and get back to my revisions. There's no place like published land. There's no place like published land. There's no place like published land...
