Day 6

Last night was a bit of a back step in my attempt to finish one of my stories. While I’ve been adding pages through, because I haven’t re-read through old pages, these new ones aren’t as continuous as I hoped for. Last night I did some editing on the train, which isn’t bad, but isn’t good– when I edit, I subtract, not add.  I started adding and the more I wrote, the more it didn’t feel right.

Today I intend on focusing on adding at least a page and/or typing up some handwritten pages. I find that for this story (that I’ve tentatively called ‘Four Cups of Tea’), I’m writing out of sequence. While it seems pretty intriguing, as I’d like to see where it goes, it’s frightening. I’m scared that I’m going to find a really good ending and then give up on writing the in-between portions. I wouldn’t want to be one of those writers who readers say “got lazy” or “gave up” or “basically got tired.”

Why is this so hard? *sigh* I must get to writing. I will note my progress later.
