Writer’s Quote Wednesday – C.J. Cherryh

This quote by C.J. Cherryh perfectly sums up the writing experience for me.

I do not think I am alone in thinking that my first and sometimes even second drafts are utter garbage.  It is in the re-writing and editing that I shine.

Knowing this sometimes slows me down as I intently read and reread what I have written hoping to find the brilliance in the words I have strewn across the page like litter along the interstate.

Oftentimes, I struggle to find the time to edit and rewrite.  Not having the time paralyzes the process for me.  I suppose that this is where a realistic editorial calendar will come into play for me.
