Day 17

It’s a winding way, but it gets somewhere. More or less.



After yesterday’s mess I was feeling stuck, discouraged; and then I read this: http://thewritepractice.com/no-mistakes/

There was another one too, that I can’t find right now, but the basic idea is that writing now is more important than writing well. Write now, and the writing well will come.

All true.

Day 16

Only made it to 950 words yesterday and they all suck so I’m not posting them. Sorry.

Better luck today, maybe…

Day 15

This came about as a combination of an earlier, failed effort with a writing ‘exercise’ supplied by Stephen King’s ‘On Writing.’ Who knew.


If we’re very fortunate, perhaps tomorrow it will acquire a resolution.

1400 words.

Day 14

I’m not entirely sure what I’m doing here. It’s a bit like the story I didn’t share, the one that went nowhere; but with a focus on the description and the experience rather than trying to make anything particular happen. Maybe it will lead to something, maybe it won’t.

1300 words.

Day something or other

I didn’t write 1000 words yesterday, and I’m unlikely to do so today. Wednesday night I read a bit of The Edge at the Coffeehouse Writers’ Group meeting, and came away with a slew of new thoughts and ideas. My writing time has been spent in massive revision.

I hope it turns out to be a good thing.

I picked up again with yesterday’s story and finished up at 3500 words. I don’t think it’s going anywhere, and I think I should start something new tomorrow.

Back again

Day 11.

Finally writing again after a weekend (and a Monday) of lunacy. Continuing where I left off. This story, however, doesn’t seem to be going anywhere; if that changes, I’ll post it, otherwise I’ll start over with something else when it runs out of gas.

In the meantime, finishing the day at 2500 words.

Day 10

I didn’t write 1000 words today. Instead I revised and posted this: http://www.whofic.com/viewstory.php?sid=51567
