I spent way to much of today in front of my computer. No, not writing. But reading things I wrote years ago.
Things unfinished not because I felt they were subpar, but because I had no idea how to write that well again.
I read the story and don’t recognize my writing. “Damn how did I come up with that dialog?” goes through my head.
I know it might sound a bit like bragging but I assure you my confidence in my writing skills are pretty low.
So, I sit and think what a great story I would like to know how that ends, but don’t feel qualified to continue it. I tried. I put hand to keyboard and _____ .
Nothing. Nada. Zilch.
I’ll try again tomorrow. My mantra is It’s going to be crap. Who cares. Just write it!
Do you have this problem too?
