It’s Friday evening and I am writing my Stream of Consciousness Saturday post tonight. I will be in a pastel drawing class all day tomorrow so I want to get this ready to go tonight.
As always, the lovely Linda Hill is our hostess and she serves this treat to us this week:
Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “ght.” Find a word that contains the letters “ght” in that order, and use it any way you’d like. Bonus points if you use three or more different words containing those letters. Have fun!
Here it is, day 8 of NaNoWriMo. I know what I ought to be doing – writing my novel. I have been writing like crazy tonight as opposed to yesterday when I was fraught with doubt and feeling like I could not or would not finish. Ha! I recognize you, inner critic, now back off!
My novel is choppy and will need loads of editing, but I am writing and that is key. It is eight o’clock and I still have plenty of time to meet my word count goal for the day. I will be out for the day tomorrow, but I am finding have a little break time between writing sessions has been good for me. I have all day Sunday to write so I am feeling good especially if I am all caught up.
Sometimes I think using our other senses helps find that often sought after muse. She’s a sly one I tell you.
I don’t know who taught me to write. I suppose a lot of people throughout my life. Maybe you cannot teach the love of writing. As Margaret Atwood (and many others along the way might have implied), “You become a writer by writing. So do it, do it more.”
Now back to writing. I have fought it long enough. It will actually be good to get a little ahead of the game.
