Having Fun

I must say that my commitment to writing while my son is at preschool has been fantastic!  I'm totally excited and things are moving along.  (YIPPEE!!!)

Sometimes I have a hard time focusing on my writing because I'm thinking, "This is awful.  This definitely sucks."

I decided that I needed to take the advice of letting myself write "crap."  I tell myself that it is OK for now, I can go back and change it later.  I can fix it.  I just need to get the idea down, the emotion, the scene.  I found that this at least helps me to move forward with my story instead of dwelling on a section that can't be fixed yet because I don't know where it was going anyway!

Do you fellow writers have a mantra you tell yourself as your writing to keep you focused enough to get the story out?


As always... Happy Writing!!!

  1. I don't know that I necessarily have a mantra... but, I have FINALLY realized that writing crap is ok. :) The important thing is to get the ENTIRE story hammered out!
