BIG writing day. Blog post AND story must be written today.
Every Wednesday my critique group meets and Tuesday is the deadline to submit. Of course, I could write anytime from Thursday through Tuesday, but I don’t.
That’s what this thirty-day writing experiment is all about though. Getting in the habit of sitting in front of my keyboard every day. Every single day. Sigh.
One part of the experiment that is working, is that I realize I do actually come up with words to put on the paper. Maybe not profound words, but words none the less.
The second thing that has happened is that my imagination, now being exercised regularly, is beginning to work again. Last night I awoke from a very odd dream and my first thought was, “That will make a great story.” I struggled to stay awake long enough to map out a couple of characters and rough plot. It’s a pretty damn good story. I just wish I could remember it this morning.
