Soundtrack: Words by Kate Miller-Heidke (listen to it--it'll be stuck in your head for days. Plus, it's kind of appropriate for all you writers)
Words: +570 on my new WIP but NONE OF THEM ARE GOOD! Why are openings so hard?
It's been a while since I've posted. Or, at least, really posted--a legitimate, thoughtful, coherent post. But honestly, don't hold your breath.
I thought this week would be another relaxing, lazy, mmm-wouldn't-it-be-cool-to-be-a-writer-one-day kind of week. The kind where I don't accomplish much and feel guilty about it later, but at the time I feel okay. Man, that sounds like unhealthy psychology.
I'm enrolled in a photography camp this week and I'm going to be doing some hardcore babysitting (is there any other kind?) in the next few days so I should be thankful for any free moment I get for writing. But beginnings have always been hard for me and I'm currently attempting to start my newest WIP, a superhero story... kind of. The funny thing is, I know exactly where the story is going. I have quite a few of my scenes and most of my characters thought out--and I know most of the plot, for once. But I think that just makes it harder for me because anything I write pales in comparison to the story in my head.
So this is me, getting back to reality. I woke up at 8 AM today. 8 fucking AM.
Why the picture of the awkward boy with wolves on his sweater? Because that is my reality. Weird, not put together, foggy...?
We'll work on that :)
