A little bit of writing on a Friday afternoon

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!
