I am writing a short story, and have been wrestling with it for days. This is not part of the book that I have been posting excerpts of, rather a short story that I want to send to a magazine..and hopefully get published.
Now mind you I am still talking about the rough draft… I need to finish the rough draft… then the fun revision part comes, but first the rough draft… I like my beginning, I like my middles, but the end is not coming. I mean, I know the ending…. but not how to get there exactly.
And I will do anything rather than finish it… clean out trash cans, shop, read other people’s blogs (althought that is fun all the time), fix Mary’s computer, because I have some graphics projects I would much rather do…
see all I have to do is basically write anything, and then the revising takes over… and I will cheerfully sit for hours revising, tweaking, polishing… so here is my short blogging break…. no emoticons, no hyperlinks, no layouts, but as soon I finish , and that will be today, then I will reward myself with some luscious scrapping, and an episode of The Closer, and reading, and maybe even a trash can or two, maybe not the trash cans.
SO for those of you kind encouragers, could you send up an arrow prayer that I might accomplish sooner than later… thanks
