Building Sand Castles
As a matter of convenience, I can start something new no matter where I am...in my car, on vacation, running errands, etc. All I have to do is grab a scrap of paper or dictate a voice memo into my phone and viola...something new is born. However, it feels a much bigger project and is definitely a more time consuming one to sit down, butt in chair, and tackle the edits and re-workings of shaping a current WIP into submission shape. Perhaps it is having the kids all home during the summer months or constantly being on the go for a variety of reasons. I have four PBs needing final edits and want them all complete before a very exciting September conference thus the time has come to buckle down and get to work. It is exciting to envision the finished products and yet daunting to tackle as a whole.
Today, I saw this quote, and it gave me new inspiration. Who doesn't love to build a great sand castle? It is an inspiring idea and one I will hold onto as I shape my sandbox into various sand castles.
Where do you find your greater inspiration...in the creation of the original draft or in the shaping into a final and finished product? I would love to hear your process and insights.
