Here is a great post from Pat Thompson on early onset satisfaction.
This is the feeling I have when I get up to write something in the middle of the night, and then go back to bed with a little smirk of satisfaction; but it only ever last until I read my ‘genius’ work the next day, to find that, without the foggy lens of sleeplessness, it really ain’t that pretty close up.
Pat’s post is great for all the writer’s out there who, like me, struggle to be satisfied with their work, ever. That goes for theoretical, as well as, creative work. It also has some cool links to other posts by writers with some very wise writing tips.
