IWSG: Turtle Power

Look!  Up in the sky --
It's a bird!
It's a plane!
No, it's...

Super Turtle!

I have some good writer qualities. 
These aren't them:

  • I take forever to decide on a project.
  • Writing an outline can take me a month or more.
  • I can't fast draft.
  • No matter how hard I try, things always take longer than I think they will.
  • When I get overloaded with commitments, my WIP is the first to go on the back burner.
  • When my schedule is clear, I still can't seem to get a lot accomplished.
  • I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by. (courtesy of Douglas Adams)

Now, I could get really down on myself about my faults, what I can't do, and my amazing resemblance to a turtle, but instead of bemoaning it -- I'm going to OWN IT!

Yes!  I'm a turtle!
It takes me a looooooong time to get anywhere, 
but I DO get there eventually.
And I'm very proud of myself when I do.

So if you bear a remarkable resemblance to a turtle - 
be proud of it!

(And wasn't there a little story about a tortoise and a hare?)
