2 weeks of writing – Day 2
February 14, 2017 Leave a comment
It’s lunch time on day 2 and I can report that yesterday afternoon I did indeed do some writing. Shit yeah!
After playing my guitar for about an hour while trying to write songs (I have 3 lyric-lacking tunes) I sat down and turned on the computer. This is my old computer that is not connected to the mother of all distractions (internet).
I sat and stared at the screen for a while, opened up Langoria, and set about commencing the tortuous 2nd Draft. It took me about 20 minutes to stop that cruel and unusual self-imposed punishment and look at the plot for my next story…the plot of which is sooo friggin awesome (and funny) that it completely took over. Langoria had to wait.
This morning, after paying bills, having some loud song-writing efforts with my geetarrgghh, and posting a revised Poltician’s Prayer that is now a President’s Prayer (see my previous post), I sat down to some serous writing of the new story and knocked out 2000 pretty good words (I think they are all proper ones and to be found in the dictionary), at least good enough for the literary spew that is a first draft.
This afternoon, it is time to bite the bullet and get into the real torture of Langoria, but first I’ll just check out John Birmingham’s twitter feed. Might be funny.
