I guess I’m continuing with the running theme…
So I’m at the tail end of this 4-week writing sprint, the same class I took last year around this time which resulted in this play I was pretty happy with.
I’ve got four days left to wrap the whole thing up. I’m supposed to get to page 40-50 by the end, ideally. Right now I’m at page 29, and last night I may have sliced and diced enough to pull me back to page 27.
So that’s like 5-6 pages a day for the next few days. Probably not gonna happen.
Also, as my son and I discussed, I’d rather have 5 quality pages of something than 50 pages of crap. So I’m struggling with that a bit, whether to just write for writing’s sake.
But maybe I’ll track here just to keep my honest and motivated.
Monday: Page 28 (being generous)
Tuesday: Page 30 (ugh, I know…)
Thursday (by midnight): 38
All right, I sent in my 38 pages. I kept cutting stuff that wasn’t working and then had to just throw an ending on there. I wasn’t crazy about it, but there is some good stuff inside. Here’s what I wrote to Caridad:
I’ll see what she sends back, and at some point decide if I’m gonna keep working on it. I feel cautiously optimistic about its having a future at the moment…
