A Writer's Affair

I have been wrapped up in tweaking my writing contest entries over the past few weeks. It has been fun, and challenging, and frustrating, all at the same time. The most frustrating part, is once I have hit the "send" button, I give into my temptation to look back over my entry...even though I can't do a darn thing about whatever mistakes I find.
I am slowly learning what is expected from the fiction writing industry, and it's killing me! For some reason, I have an affair with adverbs and gerunds, and express myself with great gusto using these two "no-no's".
SIGH.
The thing that makes me most disgruntled, is I knew these "no-no's" before I hit the send button, and chose to ignore them because I'm stubborn like that.

Hmmm, sounds similar to other parts of my life--

like Bible study...
                       disciplining my children...
                                                              laundry...
                                                                           ....always ignoring the need and moving forward way to fast.
Double SIGH.
