Writing Challenge


So I got completely stuck writing. You know when you’re just writing nonsense and filler and it’s terrible but you have no idea where you’re supposed to be getting to or how to get there? That. In order to prevent the inevitable meltdown of ‘oh my god everything I write is awful I hate myself’ I decided to change tact and pick up something I’ve not touched for a while. Then it occurred to me that because I’ve not touched it for a while I can’t remember what had happened so far.

Now, because today feels like a Writing Day, not an Editing Day (shut up, that’s totally a thing) I figured that, instead of rereading a lot of words and discovering I hate those too, I would set myself the challenge of trying to write the origin story for two of the main characters; the theory being that this will get my brain into the right universe, let me write and give the other plot time to stew by itself for a while so it can think about what it’s done. It might also help me with some of the detail of this project.

That’s the theory, anyway. I’ll post it up later (assuming I don’t chicken out) and you can let me know what you think.
