1) Chuck Wendig has provided me with my mantra during this current project: “Writing is when we make the words. Editing is when we make the words not shitty.” This, I find, must be repeated frequently.
2) My inner critic is a big ol’ sonofabitch. (see 1 above)
3) A quiet space is only truly quiet if the AC unit on the roof over you head isn’t rattling the whole office. My head now feels like it’s been jackhammered.
