Remember how I was all determined to get a lot of writing done after my post yesterday? Yeah. Not so much. I had a gazillion other little errands to do that I couldn’t put off. I wrote for a total of thirty minutes. Thirty. Minutes. Ugh.
And those thirty minutes were frustrating. I know exactly how I want my current project to read, but the words I’m choosing aren’t the right words. They’re not the right rhythm. They’re not the right pace. They’re not creating the right amount of tension.
They’re just not right.
It’s the weirdest thing. Since I know they’re not right and I know how they should read, it should be simple to make them match the scene in my head, right? Nope. Every change I make is more amounts of wrong.
I’ll give this scene one more shot today, then I’m skipping it. I have a lot more work to do on this book, and I really, really want to make it great and shiny quickly.
In happier news, my writer friend, Jenn Bennett has a new release today!
I’m doing a giveaway over on my Facebook page today. If you’re not following me over there, you should. I’m much better at updating that page than this blog. 🙂
Alright. Gonna get back to this shuttle chase scene.
