Procrastination why wait?

 I am struggling to get word count on my WIP (work in progress). I write the story then go back and fill in details: scenery, emotions and backstory. 

I want to write faster, get this done quicker but I want it to be good, no I want it to be great! I have sent other work out: novels, short stories and articles I thought were done but it re reading I found errors: misspelled words, grammar and incomplete thoughts. 

It is so important to do a good job editing. If you’re self publishing or trying to get in with a traditional publisher, an unpunished author or newly published author needs that first impression to be stellar. 

I take classes, go to workshops and ask other authors for help. Belonging to RWA, HCRW and Pamlico Writers Group and participating with NC Writers Read has given me opportunities to learn and grow. 

While it is frustrating to not have a published novel out yet, I hope the time I have spent developing my work will pay off with good reviews.

I want it done yesterday but sometimes procrastination is your friend. The key is to use that time to your benefit. Be patient and keep going forward!
