Stick to your guns when you are right
Revise when you are wrong
Have the wisdom to know the difference (there’s your tweet)
If this sounds suspiciously like the AA credo, well I can’t argue with you there. It’s important to know in both writing and life who you are. It’s important to know who you aren’t.
Who are you? What story do you want to tell? What story is your life?
It’s good to know because if you do, the sticking to your guns part will be easy and you won’t take it so personally when you have to change things up a little. The hard part is the wisdom part. You might have to wait some years for that but by then, you’ll have stuck to your guns a lot, changed ammunition a few times and the target, well the target will probably be something you never anticipated. Enjoy the ride.
