Perfect vs Reality

maze-beginSo I’ve woken up the last three mornings and wrote the minimum of three pages. The second day I wrote four pages. Yesterday I wrote nine. All long-hand. At this point I need to realize that not everything will just pour out and be a lucid story but in fact, most of it is probably shit that I will never use. But if I allow myself to look at the positive side, at least I am writing.

I still have not had any luck on the book I want and need to be writing on. I also have not returned to editing the books I have completed. I continue to procrastinate on those to do items on my list of needing to get done. But at least I am writing.

I got two chapters on a story about a woman who gets wrapped up in the life of a man who is a professional thief but wants out of the business. Only problem is he owes a lot of money to a lot of people. Worse yet, he takes her captive and she is thrown into his mess. I’ve not gotten any further. I also have not yet wrote anything this morning. I intend on writing during my planning period this morning.

My most recent task was to list five things if the best of the possible worlds were reality. Here is my list.

If the best of all possible worlds were reality…

I would get up every morning and write for at least an hour or two.

If the best of all possible worlds were reality…

I would have a job that pays me to write.

If the best of all possible worlds were reality…

I wouldn’t have to worry about laundry but instead worry about my upcoming writing deadline.

If the best of all possible worlds were reality…

My stories would come without me having to write a bunch of shit first.

If the best of all possible worlds were reality…

the characters of my next book would be putty in my hands, ready and waiting for me to…wait…that’s like saying my characters have a life of their own. I’m going mad, right?

I have begun a second job and so my creative walks and my artists dates I’ve not yet been able to complete. My biggest goal, however, to write daily, is still on track. So, go me!
