Gentle Reader, I missed a day of writing.
I feel terrible about this. I truly do. I was doing so well (for a week, anyways). But yesterday, I woke up late, had several meetings and class, and I just never got around to it. I was asleep by 8:00! I think the long week of class and new schedule finally caught up with me.
Today, however, I am writing all the live-long day, because I need to finish my academic chapter for a collection. I need to write at least a page on Marvel to bring back the momentum I lost yesterday.
I had forgotten, you realize. Writing every day is hard. And tiring. What if I run out of things to say? What if I’m stuck? You just have to keep writing and risk erasing it all the next day to start over.
Was it Dorothy Parker who said, “I don’t write six words but I change 12?” Something like that.
How is your writing going, Friends?
