Maybe it's experience...

Quite often these days I write words I enjoy reading the next day. It used to be that I cringed every single time I looked at something I wrote the day before. Somehow I've learned now to look at my writing with tomorrow's eyes. I still have to tweak a few sentences here and there, of course, but the re-writes are nowhere near as drastic as they used to be in the past. It's a real time-saver, to say the least. ;-)

One of many epigraphs that head the chapters of my novel:

"Know your strength, but focus on your purpose. Take it from a seasoned builder like me that one must not watch the hand that swings the hammer but the one that holds the nail." — Tobiel the carpenter, friend of Tehtena

A line from "The Response"

People tell me that my wife looked beautiful. This would actually make me feel good if they didn't sound so utterly surprised when they said it.
