Ahhhh!!!! Have you ever had a week where everything you’ve written has been…well, garbage? Sigh. That was this week for me. I hated the characters. The plot was going nowhere. There was no action. Which usually means for me that I have to go back and figure out what is going on. Where did I go off track? I’ve written every day, but most of what I’ve written will not make it into the final draft. I suppose that’s why all the plotters plot. So they don’t waste time.
I’d write a scene and then put ‘boring, boring, boring’ at the end. I’d write a scene and put ‘I hate this scene’. But at least I wrote. And it was my characters telling me that it wasn’t right. I’d gone off track somewhere.
Today was better. I wrote 500 words and liked it. So, I’ll tweek the last scenes or take them out all together. That’s in the rewrites! Onward!
One more week left!

How’s it going with you? Still on target to finish by next week?
On a personal note – today is my birthday! I plan to pamper myself by going out to dinner, having a mani and pedi. It’s a big birthday for me (I won’t tell you how old ) and I’m feeling old. But I’ve found my passion. I just absolutely love writing!!!!
Until next week…hope you’re inspired!
