IWSG - March 2014

11 days until St. Patrick's Day.  Just wanted to point that out.  Moving on.

I do feel like I've turned my blog into it's own Insecure Writer's mini-Blog.  Those seem to have been my posts as of late.  Bleh.

Adam has been great, as always, trying to get my procrastinating and paranoid ass in gear and get back to writing, even completing, my ugly-first-draft of my WIP.  Goal for March was to do an hour of writing every day.

Ask me how many hours I've put in since the first.  Go ahead, ask me.


Maybe one or two days I literally did not have any time whatsoever to cram in an hour of writing.  The rest of the past 120 hours of this month I've struggled.

The moment I start to think about writing, I panic.  Not sweaty palms and nail biting panic, anxiety panic.  I do that a lot (in case you haven't caught that yet from reading my posts here).

Do I finish my WIP where I left off?  Wait, I don't know what happens next, I never planned that far.  Okay, so plan from here forward.  But hang on, I've been going back thinking about the plot so far and there's some holes I need to fix.  This one other way sounds better.  Damnit, I have to move forward in the story so I can show that so-and-so isn't really dead.  Shit, Adam just mentioned about this comic that has a 2-sentence length similar plot to my WIP.  Someone's done it.  Simpsons did it!  Fuck it, I'll just start over.  But wait I've got 91 pages typed.  Ugh, I'll have to undo so much.

You people wonder why I drink!!
