It’s Friday!

Cloudy Day–To comfort myself because I cannot stand the sun and heat!

Yay! What to do on a Friday? For a writer, Fridays are a lot like any other day. I know lots of writers who take weekends off. That doesn’t work so well for me. If I take a day off writing, writing often takes time off from me.

So–I’m working on three stories right now. I seem to plan on two, pre-writing, I guess, so that I know what I’m going to do when next I open the file. And then I work on one. Strange new lack of a process. I was working on two stories, but I was driving to the store when I heard a song, and a whole new idea busted into my head. So–why not write? I’m all about possibilities these days.

Mind you, I hate the start of a story. Have you ever had to stand in front of a room and speak, but you got off on the wrong foot, and no matter how hard you work at willing your thoughts back into some sort of order, they just continue to scatter? That’s how I feel about the way I’m writing right now.

Which leaves me with two choices–stop and fear that I’ll never write any thing decent, that in fact I’ve never been a decent writer. I’m a total fraud. Or, I can keep on with my lousy effort and fix it later.

Seems as if I’d better keep on with my lousy effort.

Gotta clutch hope to your bosom–even as it tries to flee.

    Keeping on with your lousy effort and fixing it later is a swell idea!
