Dusting Yourself Off
You know what they say, "If at first you don't succeed, try, try again."
I think I prefer what a friend of mine says: "Progress, not perfection." Because this blog has certainly been a stellar example of not perfect. When I started it, I had grand ambitions to put out at least a post a week. To share my writing process, my ups and downs, my successes and failures. Needless to say, that didn't happen.
I thought I was Super Woman but life very quickly showed me that no matter how hard I tried, I couldn't make the day have more than 24-hours... and taught me that when I don't get enough sleep I get really cranky and really sloppy with my writing and editing. I'm going to give it a try again but I'm going to have more reasonable expectations of myself. But my plan is to also be kind to myself, too--no critical self-talk if I don't post as much as I think I should be.
So, time to pick myself up, dust myself off, and get back in the proverbial saddle.
Wish me luck!
