5am Writer’s Club Challenge – Day Two

July 22, 2020 admin 0Comment

With Day One getting off to a rocky start, I was determined to make today a good one.

Let’s see how that panned out:

4:50: I’ve got this. I’m going to get this done. I’m not sleeping in, I’m not watching YouTube videos, I’m just going to get right into it. Eye of the tiger, baby! Eye of the tiger!

4:51 – Man, my breath tastes foul. Maybe I should brush my teeth before I get started?

5:29: DAMN IT. Why did I have to brush my teeth first? WHY WAS I WATCHING YOUTUBE VIDEOS WHILE I BRUSHED?

5:30 – Computer’s on. Word doc is open. Let’s start writing.

5:32 – Huh. I’ve been staring at the screen for two minutes.

5:40 – Wait, I’ve been staring at the screen for ten minutes.

5:41: Is this not working today? Did I already hit a wall? I’m two days in, how could I be hitting a wall NOW?

5:42 – I should try that two-story writing technique that Neil Gaiman uses. I read that he’s either working on an upcoming story or a potential story at any given time. So if his mind goes blank when he looks at one story, he just switches over to the other. (Not that I can find a link to the article describing that right now…)

5:43 – Yeah, that’s it. Maybe I just need to pull up a new story and work on that instead. I’ve got about five other story ideas I’ve been wanting to work on. Let’s put this main project on hold and give them some love.

5:44 – I’ll just make this one little note, then I’ll switch.

5:45 – Wait, I need to make this change too. And this one, over here.


Day Three awaits! I’ll see you there.
