Practice makes perfect

Last night we went to our son's String Fest concert.  They did a great job, and I had fun listening to the progress from the first year students, to the 2nd and 3rd year, to the Jr. High and High School.  As expected, the tone quality and caliber of play increased as the students matured.  It was interesting to note, that as the students playing improved, the number of students on stage decreased.

I was reminded of how with our first stories, all the components were there, but they just weren't fine tuned, but as we continue writing, our work improves  The quality improves as we apply all the new things we have learned.

Then we work on revisions,  tightening our work even more, until only the best quality remains, the same way these students practice and work until their performance is the best it can be.

What have you seen that reminds you of the growth in your writing?  Hope you all have a great, sunny weekend, and Happy Mother's Day to all you mom's!
