I…HATE…how writing this particular short story makes me feel!  I just can’t find traction on it.  I wrote a first draft, and now I’m rewriting the whole thing.

It’s a beautiful day outside, and I’m spending it revising a short story that just won’t come together.

    good luck with that

    hey listen to your gut feelings. there’s perseverance and there is knowing when to let go.

  3. And of course, I would just say enjoy the day since it is beautiful outside. Autumn weather has a way of brightening up the inside.

  4. Oh, I know this feeling. And I know you’re under deadline, so it may not be something you can put aside for another day… I hope the story shapes up SOON.

  5. I _HATE_ this story now. But I’ve gone and asked for a few extra days…and so maybe I’ll read a few short stories and become inspired, somehow. I was doing SO well with writing to my deadline…until THIS short story!

  6. Like fruit, you know. Sometimes it just has to ripen. Might take a week longer than you’ve scheduled. Or a year. Or a decade, like one of mine did.

    Sometimes it’s more pointful to start something else, or go enjoy the day. 🙂
