The edits and second draft of my novella should have been put to bed months ago.

My editing process started off really well in early July but a few days into it, life took over and I had to put it aside.

By this point, I had envisioned building a short list of beta readers for the second draft while I researched how to get a book cover done.

But I’m only getting back into the editing pool now.

Shoulda, shoulda, shoulda…

Naturally, I feel a little lousy but I’ve stopped beating myself up about it.

It finally sunk into my thick skull that I only have 24 hours a day and responsibilities I choose not to delegate.

In other words, I’m giving myself grace.

The race is not for the swift but for those who can endure to the end, right?

When was the last time that you gave yourself grace?
