I Love It, I Love It Not

Saturday morning I loved what my critique partner didn't like.
Saturday afternoon, I hated it too.
Saturday night I loved my new opening, thought it was my best work yet.
Later Saturday night, I hated the opening, contemplated tossing the whole idea.
Sunday morning my critique partner sent a note the new opening is awesome!
Later Sunday morning I smiled and decided NOT to throw it in the trash.
Sunday afternoon I see so much more potential in this draft of the opening.

Finding out I've still got the magic? Priceless.

That's wonderful news! Really.

This one must be a winner. It's certainly putting you through the wringer.

Good luck!

Monika, I'm feeling pretty good about this one. The action is nonstop so far and my characters are exhausting me!
