Diary of a bad writer – Week 42

Diary of a bad writer banner

July 23rd, 6:00pm –  Its been a long day at work today. I’m tired but will try to get some writing in, even if it’s just a paragraph. I just have to get started, then I’ll be fine… Why?

I recognize I write for the love of writing. One or two sentences is a start.

It all adds up.

    The days when your brain already feels exhausted and unwilling to cooperate are the hardest to write. I’m glad you push yourself to start even on those days. Take it one day at a time! Like you said, it all adds up!!

    Absolutely! Enjoy it, and don’t put too much pressure on yourself. ‘Every little helps’. I’m rather behind on blogs so I’m sorry this is a little late.
    Have a lovely weekend, Darnell!

    I love your attitude Darnell! Remaining positive during a challenge is a test all writers must pass… again, and again…

    LOL! Write for the love of writing?
    That must be why I think everything I write is garbage. I HATE TO WRITE.
    I’ve heard that several famous writers also hated to write…and thought everything they wrote was crap. Must be a “writer” thing. 🥴

      Yeah, your muse is to hate, but create. It gets your fabulous stories completed. Yep, it’s a writer thing.😉

      So why do you write if you hate it?

        I started writing because it was cathartic. I had been emotionally murdered and I just wrote about the aftermath.
        Then I started writing stories…dark and twisty stories.
        Maybe it was the catalyst for writing my book. But, as I said…I hate it. 🥴

        Weird. I have to admit that I’ve never heard anyone who writes say they hate writing. I’m glad it works for you, though.

        I have asked many times…”do you know how many famous authors despise writing and think everything they write is absolute garbage?”
        I read somewhere that Stephen King thought everything he wrote was “crap.” That might have been before he became famous. 🥴

        Well, I do get the second part. I think most of us are doubtful about our talent.

        LOL. I’ve always thought everything I wrote pretty much sucked…except maybe “Dear God.”
