Ever have one of those writing days where you don’t really wanna but you know you should, so you do? But then it’s like you have to push & shove & pull & fight to get 2 sentences on the page… and those 2 sentences sound like utter crap.
So then you begin a cycle of writing a couple of sentences, reading it, shaking your head, back spacing.
Writing a couple of sentences, reading it, shaking your head, back spacing.
over & over & over again.
Yep! One of those days.
But I will say that I did manage to get a page or two written despite all that & while it may be a total mess when I have to edit back through later… that’s okay. Something was written & that’s always better than nothing. Gives me something to edit in the future if nothing else.
Or who knows? May edit back through & find it to be an outstanding couple of pages. Future Heather may be like this is literary gold. 😀
So here I am blogging about my writing woes. But really if that’s all I have to complain about I must say I’m doing pretty good. 🙂
Talk to you all later.
It feels so incredibly good to spend hours with a pen & a notebook.
Typing is great. Flipping open my laptop and writing away the time is good stuff.
However, there is still nothing quite like writing with pen & paper.
I just filled page after page with notes, characters, & plot details. — & for me, doing that on paper is so much more enjoyable than typing it up. — Eventually I have to bust out the laptop for almost all the book writing… but in the beginning stages, before the real story writing begins….. you’ll always find me with a pen & paper.
Book Update: It’s going really well! I’m just getting started, but I’m definitely off & running. — I’ll keep you guys updated. But I think for sure, one of the best things I’ve done lately was deciding to follow my heart & instinct on this whole book change thing. — I’ve known these characters and their stories for years… I just never thought that was the type of writer I should be or the type of genre I should be in. — A tragic love story was never the road I thought I should travel down. But in these characters and that of their family & friends, I have the ability to breathe the life into them that I’ve always known was there. — That’s exciting and it’s even a bit magical. — How could I possibly pass on that?
