TO WRITE OR NOT TO WRITE
Do you ever sit down to write, and realize that you don't want to? Well today, I have been experiencing the exact OPPOSITE.
I want to write and create, but I don't want to sit down at my computer. I want to move. I want to do things. I want to go on an adventure. A real one.
I wonder if I can run on a treadmill and write at the same time....
Well, after careful consideration, I decided that strapping my laptop to the front of my treadmill is not the best idea.
So here I am. Sitting at my desk. And bouncing my leg hard enough it just might fall off.
I think that part of the reason I'm having such a hard time actually DOING the writing, is that I have recently fallen victim to the self-aware-story-syndrome. (Basically my story has decided to deviate from the planned path and do its own thing).
So what might happen is that I won't end up with 12 chapters like my outline suggests. I might have 13. Or even 15.
And there's nothing wrong with that--except for the fact that I wanted this story to be 12 chapters. The reason being is that I had carefully defined what needed to happen for each chapter. But SURPRISE! my characters have more story to tell than I originally planned.
Is it just me, or is this starting to sound like the complaints of a genius procrastinator?
Oh would you look at that. They exist.
Yep. I'm procrastinating.
Happy New Year's Eve!!!
