So… Â Who wants to be my editor? Â Agent? Â Writing bully buddy?
I’m beginning to think that I need someone to assume an Authority Role and give me deadlines and direction. Â After all, bosses work so well elsewhere, don’t they? Â Setting my own goals for this whole writing thing only seems to get me so far. Â There comes a time when you need a slave-driver to insist that your output isn’t enough, that a few sleepless nights are needed to meet the deadline, to demand a re-write of a pivotal scene that is barely a decent-enough start.
Of course, this will only work if there’s a light at the end of the tunnel. Â Like a book publication that lands on shelves somewhere. Â But for now a little arbitrary pushing and shoving might be a welcome motivator.
