R is for relief. For me there is a huge sense of relief when I reach the end of my story. It’s like I have climbed a long mountain. Nowadays, I have this sense of relief when I complete smaller goals, like if I finish my feature for the newspaper much before the due date or if I finish reading a book and complete the review fast for the paper or if I meet the word count for the day.
One of my favourite thriller writer mentions in the acknowledgement section of every book, that now that she has completed the book she is free to be invited for dinners.
I am sure it must be the same for other writers. But this sense of relief is short-lived. Because with another deadline looming large anxiety starts building up again.
What in your writing world brings on a sense of relief for you?
