WIP Wednesday

August 3, 2011 | WIP Wednesday

I’m enmeshed in the new story to the point where I need reminders to attend to real life. Yet, whenever I do leave the manuscript for a a minute or two my tummy flutters with nerves over the holiday story. These periodic anxiety attacks will continue until I hear from the gracious editor. My stomach doesn’t care that I’ve had lots of stories accepted, still wondering if this is one is good enough.

I’ve never found a way to be objective about my own work. Invariably, I seesaw between why on earth did I think this mess was viable entertainment and this is the best thing I’ve ever written. :unsure:

Can you step away from your work enough to assess it realistically? Or are you, like me, too deep in the trees to tell anything about the forest?
