can be a good thing or a bad thing. Case in point: CWC tonight.

I'm looking forward to hanging out with the gang. Enjoy their company, their intelligence and humor.

Not looking forward to my critique. Since the last one was pretty dang bad and the submission being critiqued tonight is the end of the same manuscript, I know it will be just as bad if not worse. Why didn't I change it before submitting? Because I don't want to revise until I have all the feedback and have some time to think on it a while. Decide what I'm going to do.

From now on, I want to avoid submitting works in progress or even a completed first draft. Those are supposed to poorly written and submitting them just helps fuel my already highly tuned sense of self-doubt. Which gives me about a month to work on my second draft of TNN.

But at least I'm prepared for the worst tonight. I hope.
