I have had an idea for a story to write. Actually two different ideas.
Now why am I so afraid to open a document or a notebook and write something down? It seems so huge. A mountain I just can’t get a foothold on. I know I need to take little baby steps. Maybe plan a character, sketch out a story map. This time it isn’t like a blog post where I can sort of ramble on, it just feels too official. This is how I felt when I started my dissertation….but by supervisor helped me break it down into smaller steps and then checked to see if I was doing them. It worked for me. Someone checking in to see what I was up to and kicking my butt when they thought my writing needed it. Maybe it is deadlines that I need. Oh and someone to kick my butt. Still working on that one.
Dwritewords has suggested that I do Camp Nanowrimo….(thank you for sharing that!) and I think I will. Deadlines may work for me. Now that I have some ideas about what I want to write about, I could make it happen by the end of the month. I will have to admis that t won’t be perfect and it might even suck, but I will never get better at writing if I just keep thinking about it and never doing it!
Off to fill out my profile! Yet another way to procrastinate “real”writing! Tee hee hee.
