That's the name of the game. The only question for any given day is: did you write today? If the answer is yes, I consider myself to be a Major Sucess. I scream, "Yay!!!!!!!!!" in my journal. I really do. And I deserve it because I've done my job.
Today I wrote the next scene for Ink, the book that contains four (I've shaved it down to four) short stories, surrounded by an "over-story". The short stories are already written, though they need to be edited. What I'm doing during this off-period -- while I'm waiting for readers to get back to me about my horror novel -- is trying to finish up this odd book. It's a spare-time project.
There are still aspects of the plot that I have to hash out, but today I think I did a good job of setting up the premise, the trick of the outer story. It's getting there.
That's what it's all about: writing and moving ahead, and in the process creating new worlds. I love being a writer.
