Gentle Reader, sometimes it’s hard for me to ask for help. I think I should do it On My Own because I’m a Big Girl in her Big Girl Pants. But sometimes, I need to remember that it’s okay–nay, expected–for me to ask for help.
So I have.
I need help trimming March down 50 more pages, so I’ve asked a colleague to read the draft and see what she thinks. I just don’t have the critical distance right now, and while I can edit and remove a page here and three pages there, I don’t have it in my to go slicing and dicing without some guidance.
But the other part of me, the Big Girl part of me, thinks I shouldn’t have asked for help from the colleague or my agent. Why? Who knows. I just feel as if I am bothering them in some way. Silly, no?
Tell me, Friends, if you run into these warring parts of yourself. Any difficulty asking for help with your projects?
