It Sucks. Fix It.
Ha ha, what a title for a blog post! It came to me yesterday when one of my favorite writing friends (who we shall call "Four" for convenience) sent me her query with that title as her email subject line.
But I think that "Four's" blunt call for help has a much deeper and symbolic meaning. I think quite often we create sucky stuff. I know I do. We can't always write lyrical, poetic, amazing literary brilliance. Sometimes we just suck! Plain and simple. And we need help fixing it. And that's okay!
That's why it's so important to have great writing friends. Who can help you turn your crap into something decent, something polished. So let's give ourselves permission to write terrible junk! In fact, I promise that today I will only write truly hellish, awful, pathetic garbage. I'll fix it tomorrow!
You with me?
