I am about to read, judge, and provide feedback on some 500 word flash fiction for Mash Stories.
First I am going to drink some cold brewed coffee and eat a protein cookie.
If you can’t tell, I’m procrastinating right now. I’m in charge of approving the feedback on the 17 stories that I am about to read and I’m nervous because I want the feedback to be terrific. I want my team to succeed. And, with that, for our writers to succeed.
I ordered two books yesterday: The War of Art and The Dip. Both books have to do with ‘the resistance’, or the hesitation that comes with embarking on creative work. And in my case, editing and evaluating the creative work of others.
I am very excited to give these books a read.
