My jittery self has been putting off sending out another story, "Kari No-Name", until, finally, I had to let it go or go nuts. I re-wrote the first chapter probably 20 times, and still I thought I could do better. And perhaps I could have, but there comes a time when you just have to let it go. Why that happens to many writers I can only guess, and probably procrastination happens to each writer for different reasons. So, I either come to grips with it or I stop writing. I've decided on the former, for I can't do the latter. I grit my teeth, cross my fingers, and send it out. After all, what else is there except to write and hope a young person will read my story and take something from it that gives her what she needs?
