But since I'm a bit of a type A personality, I'm aiming to finish more than half this year. The good thing to this is that I have to go further out of my comfort zone than I've ventured in years. I think that limits aren't always set in stone, and the only way to grow is to step past those limits. It's only once those limits are behind us that we really realize what we're capable of.
So I'm thinking that 2014 will be a year of great growth for me as writer. I'm going to learn so much, and do so much more than I thought I could. Why? Because I have tons of untapped potential, because I've stuck to certain parameters ever since I started writing.
Now, I can't hide behind any excuses. And if I can't do that, I can't really waste valuable writing time either.
I'm pretty sure I'm on the right track. For the past four days, I've been drafting two WiPs while editing a third. And I'm really not feeling any slow-down in my output. On the contrary, I suspect I'll be more productive than before.
This coming from a person who used to be adamant that she couldn't draft and edit in the same time period.
I can't wait to see which other self-imposed limits are false.
How's your writing/editing going so far?
