"Writing Progress is Defined by...."


IWG members answer this perplexing question....

Writing progress is defined by the number of soul wrenching moments you agonize over your work, and the amount of joy filled accolades when your work is accepted.

Writing progress is defined by inspiration and not perspiration. If I agonize for ages and my only result is a single, lonely phrase that truly moves me, it is worth infinitely more than the mechanized machinations I perfomed to crunch out pages of uninspiring drivel.

Jim Henderson

Writing progress is defined by what new facet of Lin is revealed by the time I close down the file for the day.  It isn't the word count.  I often agonize for hours on a single word within a sentence.  So I mark progress by Lin's evolution.  Her growth defines me as an author.
