Grrr...I'm rusty

>> Sunday, June 08, 2008

A great opportunity dropped into my lap a few days ago. The president of another local writer's organization invited me to a workshop with a wonderful editor/writer who has given workshops through my RWA chapter in the past.

The editor will be reviewing the first 15 pages of each student's mansuscript. Only problem is that I've had these first pages reviewed recently by a best-selling author who gave a similar workshop through our RWA chapter last month, and I haven't had time to make the suggested changes.

So, now that 3 of my 5 ultrasound related tests are out of the way (that's a long, ugly story) and I'm a registered sonographer...again...I'm working on the rewrites.

And...it's...PAINFUL. My words stick, my sentence structure is all gummed up and I'm self-editing every other word--all traits that are not typically a problem for me. At least they haven't been in the past.

Do you ever get rusty?

Most definitely! Definitely, definitely, definitely. It's a muscle. Heck, even if I skip one day, I get sorta ... gummy, as you say, the next day.
