Re-, re-, re-.....
At the moment I have troubles with the "re-". I love to write and read my draft but after a time, it gets hard and harder.
I try to avoid the word "boring" because that wouldn´t fit.
But the "re- process" isn´t as thrilling as the actual act of composing for me.
What an insight, isn´t it? Lol;))))
So, today will be a challenge- I have to reread my assignment, rethink some expressions and paragraphs, rewrite some sentences- have to revise my draft.
Why is it so difficult to do the "re-thing"? I mean for me? I know other people who don´t seem to have problems in revising drafts. Some are able to do revisions again and again. I wish to have their skills, their patience, sometimes.
And here I am now, blogging -instead of revising. Here I can create something new; even if it doesn´t interest anyone but me;))) The writing is "new", sometimes I get comments on this writing, get feedback.
Maybe that´s the problem with revising other drafts.
Not just maybe, it´s a fact that a lack of feedback doesn´t help to increase intrinsic motivation.
Ok, explaining this doesn´t help me to go on with my revisions. I have known this before...
Maybe I just have to think of my future readers. (Will I have some?) I want them to have fun with my writings; I want them to get new insights. Maybe these thoughts provide enough motivation for revising my writing now...hopefully.
Ok, ready, steady and go.
Go and revise.
ok, I´ll do that now, till next time;)
