|Don't let her fool you, she's about 79% evil|
Well anyway, on to the main topic at hand today. As most of you know, I tend to do a lot of writing. I had better do a lot of writing, I am an author (technically) and sure, most of it is blog posts, but it still counts. What you might not know is that I don't get as much writing done as I would like. Even with how long I've been writing, I still run in to problems when I'm writing. Problems such as being unsure how a particular scene is going to go, or how a story itself is going to go. Maybe even knowing how everything is going to go, but still being unsure on how to write it. If you read old Immortal Space updates you'll be able to see a difference to the latest ones in how I write.
These problems are things that can halt the writing process and bring it to a standstill. If you're unsure on what to do, then you're going to do nothing because, well, you have no idea what to do. At first I was very uncomfortable with this, and I would hate stopping. But lately I've become better at being able to manage this. Not just managing problems, and overcoming them, but accepting that sometimes I need to set a story aside, and maybe work on something different, until I've worked out the next part.
Fang commented a few days back that knowing that his skills don't match his vision is why he's writing other things before beginning work on his grand and epic story, and he's right to do so. I encourage you all to write something silly, something meaningless, something fun. If you can't write in what you want to write in, then write something else.
Just, write something.
And if you have cats, consider sleeping pills. For you, not the cat. That would be dangerous and potentially heart breaking.
