Sometimes writing is like this…

Friday, December 15th, 2006

I love being a writer. What I can’t stand is the paperwork.
Peter De Vries, editor, novelist (1910-1993)

For me, it’s hardest when I’m starting out and my idea is at its vaguest. This is when my room is neater, laundry is done, when I do stupid web tricks or pass the time reading writing blogs.

In good news, last night’s notebooking session was very productive, as was this morning’s at the gym. (Which reminds me, I haven’t seen Jaguar man in a very long time. Tattoo-boy is there regularly, so that’s nice.) You’d think I’d be all raring to go with the new stuff, but no. It involves some painful reordering of events and writing from scratch.

So. Sigh. Off to it. Because, unfortunately, words don’t write. Writers do.
