After a few weeks in the doldrums, and completely retooling the next installment of Phoenix Worthy, I am writing again. The opening is very much different and I actually like this one.
You ever read your own work and say to yourself, “That’s garbage!”
Well, that’s what I saw when I read my first pass at opening my new novel. The step back was necessary, albeit a good bit longer than it should’ve been.
I’m also scaling back my aggressive goal and shooting for 1000 words a day. I’d rather occasionally exceed the goal than constantly fall short.
Anyway…. the good news of the day is, I am writing again.
“Writers seldom choose as friends those self-contained characters who are never in trouble, never unhappy or ill, never make mistakes and always count their change when it is handed to them.” ~ Catherine Drinker Bowen
