Saturday Haiku

The joys of picture book and middle-grade novel writing are many,

and the revision process can sometimes be joyful as well,

especially when I am able to trim unnecessary words effectively,

or I think of a better way to express something.

But some days I can get myself all twisted up,

unsure if it is funny enough, or scary enough,

or sweet enough, etc.

At which point I should just close my laptop

and take a break.

But, if I have a deadline

and need to keep revising until it feels right,

The angst comes creeping in.

Today is Haiku Saturday. Today I experienced angst while revising. So... a haiku...

Revision Angst

My story needs work.

I change it, unsure, wondering.

Is it good enough?
