You’re right, there wasn’t a week three in the organizational process. Sigh…
Work continues however as my note in Week Two-ish indicated. I’ve taken several more steps since then but no words or story is close to appearing.
The first was to realize the tiny-wee-editor who sits in judgement of my writing was very unhappy with my story ideas. The words used to describe these ideas ranged from “so what?” to “banal” to “overused” to those that I really don’t want to print here. I had forgotten how upset this critter gets when he’s not amused by my actions.
And what a downer that was – to realize that indeed much of what I was thinking of could indeed have been written by any other 13-year old boy.
Ooops. Guess I get to start that process over. Or ignore the damn editor. The problem is this one is usually correct and I’ve learned to trust that judgment over the years. (As an aside, I’m trying to decide whether the ideas really suck or whether it’s resistance rearing its head and for the moment I’m going with “suck”.)
