Does anyone else get that feeling, when you've just finished a piece you're proud of, of slightly anxious excitement when you've just submitted a piece of work? I know it's just basically a form of impatience, but when I post something I'm proud of I want to people to see it as soon as possible. I'll hang around, refreshing the page, waiting for alerts. It stops after a bit of time, caffeine addiction doesn't help, but I still do it. Hadn't thought of it much, because I don't post a lot of works. I normally post poems on here, but I posted a short story called "The Cold Ones" not too long ago. I popped it out from an idea I had a while back and my caffeine overdose allowed me to finish it in a day. I got quite a few responses and kept pushing off editing it. Call it laziness or lack of inspiration, but I finally got around to it today. I kept the core of it, but took feedback (something I also don't do often) and applied it to the piece. Now, I'm more of a write 10,000 pages in one sitting and MAYBE edit it further down the road. I'm more likely to just start a new piece, though. Since my main focus is novels, this short story is good for me. Thanks everyone for the feedback, I think I reached a new area in my writing. Though, I came up with a unique plot idea and now I want to make it a series . Refresh.
