Time: Friend or Foe?
I have issues with time.
I can't control it. It ticks on faster when life throws you a happy moment; it goes so slowly when I least need it to. Time doesn't care what I'm doing. It goes along at its own pace, and I'm just a bug in it's web.
And in writing, time is all things good and bad.
I love how time gives me the distance to see my writing in a new light. It makes me a better writer.
But I find waiting so frustrating. I'm not patient, and publishing and writing aren't fast things. Even if you can write a novel in two weeks, chances are it'll take a heck of a lot longer to revise that sucker into something publishable.
Time. (*raises fist*) Grrr.
What I wouldn't do for Hermione's Time Turner! I want it!
Okay, rant over. :)
