I don’t know about you, but I’m definitely entering a love-hate period with my Nano MS. Some days, I really feel in touch with my MC’s dilemma, and the words come easily. Other days, I have trouble keeping all the threads of the story straight, and I constantly glance back at my outline hoping to find some little hint or turn of phrase which will restore the story’s magic in my head.
I suppose this is what it all comes down to: learning to write when we don’t feel like writing. It’s an experience similar to that of a long distance runner who sees yet another hill materialize out of the fog and knows, though he questions whether he has it in him to make the ridgeline, that he must press on anyway, buckle down and dig deep, or risk failure.
It’s in this way we find out what we’re really made of. 😀
Happy writing everyone! Stay groovy!! 😀
