To write anything and everything without critiquing myself before I even begin. I am my own worst enemy when it comes to writing. Two or three words and I'm ready to scrap it...I've written all my life but I tossed out all the work I did when I was younger, which I regret tremendously now. So....this is my beginning.
Hi Frankie. Give those inner critics a job. Send them to proofread the NYTimes.com page. That ought to keep them at bay perpetually! As for me, well, I want to write a good blog post today, and then to write at least 2500 words on my memoir, which should take me over 42,000!
Oh indeed! I giggle everytime I read any newspaper. I'm afraid too much time spent proofing the Times would cause an aneurysm. I certainly need to get back to my blogs. I've often considered a memoir. I'm sure it would be both amusing and frightening to readers, especially my family. What a great gift that would make- to myself.
Goal for today is to read a book of short stories I'm going to review and write some notes to get me started. Also, I'm going to start my next short story today... no excuses! I guess that means no cooking! Yay!
Happy to report that I finished reading the book that I'm reviewing and jotted down some great notes. Also started my new short story and got way beyond where I expected to!
Bravo! That's exactly what I need to try to stir those brain cells from stagnation!!!
