Productivity

Unfortunately, this quote sums up many of my writing days 😦

I was working on the proof of one of my poems all the morning, and took out a comma. In the afternoon I put it back again….Oscar Wilde

Some days are definitely more productive than others.

  1. Sandra, I can so relate to this as many writers can I guess!! But the upside is, we show up at our writing each time, to do even the smallest change, thats the important bit!! Love the posts!!!

    • Thanks Julie. Yes, I think that is the key. Even if you don’t actually feel like you’ve done very much, it’s that regular commitment that adds up to more and better writing in the long term.

  2. My favourite comment of all time!

  3. Boy, does this say it all. I kick myself when I just edit (like I did last night), but sometimes it’s simply the comma that makes the difference (or not).

    • You are so right, editing makes a huge difference sometimes. It’s just that a session of editing doesn’t appear to have produced anything whereas a session of writing can produce pages and pages, no matter how good or bad they are.
