Well I’ve had a slow week for writing so far. I hope to turn that around today and get at least half of a chapter written. As such, here is a piece of inspiration for anyone struggling, or just feeling lazy (like me):
When I have a slow day, I hate coming across advice like this, but it’s true. I can tell myself “write one page,” but the scene is never done at the end of the page. I have to keep going until the scene is done, and often by then I don’t want to stop anyway.
So just start writing. It doesn’t matter if it’s bad or choppy at the beginning of a session – that’s what editing is for. The important thing is to get it out of your mind and onto the page. I can’t tell you how many quotes I’ve come across saying that you can’t edit what you haven’t written. So write. Write and don’t worry about anything.
Take care, fellow travelers.
