This is way too slow. And occasionally it looks as if what I’m really working on is a procrastination laboratory. My favorite new device is noodling over paragraphs I finished days ago. I find myself staring at one of them, wondering fitfully if I shouldn’t change this word or rearrange these sentences.
The good thing about blogging is that we are forced to work at pace. The bad thing about writing is that dithering goes unpunished…at least in the short term.
Today, I actually started a spreadsheet which I hope will force me to stay at it. Plus, it proved to be a good way to blow 15 minutes that I would otherwise have spent writing. Well, the spreadsheet only actually took a minute to create. I spend the other 14 wondering what it says about me as a writer that I am using a spreadsheet. I decided Dickens would definitely have had a spreadsheet. Proust, maybe not so much.
It’s be a while before I am back to blogging but in the meantime I have a problem. I need an agent. Any thoughts or suggestions would be much appreciated. Please let me know: grant27[@]gmail[dot]com.
