The Second Time Around

Back in the early days of this blog I wrote this post about painting the deck and likening it to finishing a novel-length manuscript. Now, within the last week, I have both mailed back the final edits to my second novel, and repainted the deck (I paint it every five years, whether it needs it or not) and I found both a little bit easier than the first time, and for the same two reasons:

1. I wasn’t alone.

2. I’d done it before.
