That bleh feeling. (Commonly known as writer’s block)

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not in a bad mood or anything. It’s just that the weekend has totally wiped me out, and I can’t get my words to come out right. Rather than write a bunch of crap, I’ve opted to conveniently procrastinate instead. This is not productive, and if I was a dog, I’d be shamed with one of those little hand written signs. Really, I should be writing.

It’s not that I don’t want to. I really do. I’m just getting to the first big action-y HEE-YA part of the book. I just have this crappy feeling that it sounds lame, or it’s not coming out exactly right, or the characters are a little out of character. I don’t know what it is. It’s just not flowing as nicely as I’d like it to. I’m attributing this to the fatigue and slight tummy ache of still being kind of worn out from the weekend, but who really knows. Maybe it’s just one of those off kind of days.

I think the general remedy for this kind of writer’s block is just to write crap. Like, literally. You just write the crappy version and keep going, because thats what editing is for. But you know what? I wanna write it right the first time, dammit! >_<

Oh well. I’m hoping a good nights rest will keep me sane and creative. Maybe I’ll chisel out a bit more of this chapter and try and call it a night.

I don’t like writing crap, but I think it’s the only way I’ll be able to keep going. I can’t really just decide to ‘stop because I dont feel like it’, can I? No, not if I want to get it done in a timely manner, I don’t think. Music helps though. Thank god for music.

Crappy writing hooooooooooooooo~
