I didn't feel like writing today. At. All. I have't been sleeping well. So I am tired. Real Tired. At 10:40pm I decided to wrap my simultaneous binge of Fringe and computer Solitaire, but I felt like I was betraying my laptop by only playing a stupid game. So I found myself opening my writing program instead of powering down.
It was sucky writing. All 40 minutes of it. (30 minutes is my modest goal) But I did it! Even though I was tired and didn't want to.
Discovery #5: Even when the writing is bad I can still feel a sense of accomplishment. It can only get better. The words I wrote tonight...the poor dialogue and crappy sequencing can at some point be reworked. Even in the midst of the 'yuck' my characters were starting to feel alive. And that is a good thing.
