Sometimes it feels that way when I write my first draft even though I outlined the novel first. ;)

Stephanie McGee said...

Sucks doesn't it to realize that it's more true than we perhaps realize. LOL.

Great quote.

Stina - I think we all feel that way about our first drafts. Personally, I'm never prepared enough for the garbage that my first drafts are ;)

Stephanie - I think it's less the realization of how true it is as it is finally accepting it as the truth. Hmm, that sounded sort of profound.

That kind of goes along with my post last week, about when it's not in your control. Which is almost all of the time. Hard, but true.

It can be hard to let go of things that aren't in your control. But trying to control everything just drives you crazy! Great quote.

WindyA said...

Sarah - Yep, control what you can is the best way to put it I think.

Angie - I think you're right, it would totally drive me even crazier.

YES!! (I knew there was a good reason for being a control freak!)

I love quotes and put a lot of thought into the ones I choose so it says so much to me about the quotes you post. You're so wise, compassionate, and incredible, Windy. You know that?
