Are you regular - with regard to writing, that is - or do your stories progress with little rhyme or reason?
My prevailing mood of the week is... *drum roll* ...frustration. I can't seem to get into 'proper writing' mode, i.e. producing stuff that makes sense or editing stuff so that it makes sense. I have produced pages of freewriting, but the words refuse to assemble into stories.
I've been thinking about my last post, where I mention that Ray Bradbury set out writing a story a week. The way Bradbury describes it, this sounds like a mechanical method of writing that always produces a story a week. I'm envious: my writing is far more erratic.
Some weeks I seem to go into overdrive, producing drafts and editing and completing/polishing stories. Other weeks, I seem stuck. Guess which occurs more frequently?
The logical part of my brain says 'relax - it all averages out in the end' but my impulse is to panic. All I can do is keep trying and hang in there. Meanwhile, I'll enjoy the glorious Devon sunshine!
