Butterflies

“Just living is not enough,” said the butterfly, “One must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower.”  Hans Christian Anderson I just wanted to share these butterflies on my blog today. A lovely card from a lovely, talented friend who always seems to know the exact words I need to hear. butterflies Enjoy your weekend! And Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there.

The Beauty of Butterflies

“We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.”

Maya Angelou

The same could be said about writing, don’t you think? As a reader we’re presented with the final product,  edited and polished until it shines. But how many drafts, revisions, and edits did it go though to get there? We should never be discouraged with our first attempts at a story. It will change and grow over time.

Perhaps it is a good thing that readers never have to read the first drafts of some very popular books. If they did they might not want to read the finished book at all.

Enjoy your weekend!
