I really really want to get on with writing, but don’t really know what to write. I’ve just edited a bit of the blueberry yogurt story. I think I need longer away from it though. At the moment I think it’s really good, so need to step back so I can see it for what it is not what it is in my head.
I started this story yesterday about a girl going on holiday with her gran, mum and great auntie Pearle. I could carry on with this, but I don’t really feel it today.
That really means I SHOULD carry on with it. I need to start making myself write even when I don’t feel like it. Although I feel like writing today, so does it matter what I write?
I have been wondering a lot the last 24 hours (I know, so long, ha ha!) about whether I’m doing the right thing just writing random little bits then leaving them. Should I be persisting with things to get to the end, or is it ok doing this because surely ANY writing is better than NO writing? I lied, I’ve actually been thinking about this for a lot longer, I believe I’ve blogged about this exact thing before. I think I’m going to go with it’s fine to do. If I have an idea, getting it down is good, maybe it will lead to something later. I once sat a wrote a little scene about a tube journey. A few days later I realised it would go in ‘Holiday’ really well. Yes, I’m doing the right thing.
In fact, thinking about it now, I can maybe see the airport scene going into Holiday. Changed quite a bit, but it could fit. He he, go me!
