A priest walks into a coffeehouse…

November 6, 2010 § 2 Comments

…and that is all I have so far. Approximately 350 words of stuff I saw while sitting in the coffee shop between classes, trying to come up with an idea that would willingly coalesce into something vaguely resembling a story, or at least something I can make into a book cover, at the very least.

I re-read the beginning of my zombie story from last year (I fell off the wagon at around 12,000 words), and I liked some of the stuff I wrote in a rough sort of way, which is interesting because at the time I wrote it, I was tearing out my hair and shouting “It’s all crap!” at the top of my lungs.

I want to write again. I really do. It’s not even about the word count, more about being able to look back on something and see a glimmer of hope. So I’ll keep trying.

    Don’t give up. I am writing just for writing’s sake. I try to make it good but I know it would still take a lot of work. I’m not even thinking of publishing. Just writing.

    I hear you. I’m self-fulfilling my destiny to suck at Nanowrimo (aka, not hitting 50k), but I’m still dedicating myself to writing everyday. Sometimes the best you can do is just to keep going.
