I was just watching "Sweet Genius" on the FOOD Channel, a show where four chefs get to compete against each other each week for pastry genius Ron Ben-Israel.
In the second competition of the day, right in the middle of creating their fortune cookie/chocolate/ballerina inspired confections, the chefs were thrown a monkey wrench and given BLUE CHEESE as an ingredient to incorporate into their creation. Ugh! Well OMG. *just threw up a little*
After doing what was required and stressing over his project, one of the chefs had this to say as he stepped away from it: "My philosophy usually is when in doubt, don't touch it any more, because you'll probably just make it worse."
Heh. For a second there, I thought he was talking about a manuscript of mine.
I say apply this to your fiction writing, y'all. Wash. Rinse. And repeat. If nothing else, it's a sure-fire formula for less stress, and you just might learn to start trusting yourself more, eh?
