Impatience - a Writer's Worse Nightmare

The worst trait a writer can have is impatience.  This 'emotion' is the basis for almost all of the bad decisions made by a writer.  I am well acquainted with impatience; we're old friends. Impatience leads to over-sight, over-stepping and over-indulgence.  Those of us infected with this trait, often send out a story long before it's ready, and spends a lot of time wincing at the things that might have been. 

I'd go into more detail about the cause and effect of impatience, but then you'd miss the point.

Till next time,
