The difference between me and Laura Rider is that I actually write my story down, something she never does. She just thinks about it. Which is fine, but at some point you have to actually start typing. Or at least pull out a notebook and pen. Which is what I did this morning.
Got my scene written. I knew exactly what it had to do, but still, every word felt like the worst most obvious and horrible way to say it. Just terrible, trite, clumsy, awkward, messy, and stupid. Had to keep reminding myself over and over again that I could fix it later.
Some days I soar through six or eight pages. Today it was a struggle to lurch through three.
