I honestly didn't get much writing done yesterday. I had decided to read through about two thirds of my manuscript to get myself back into that world.
Have you ever had one of those moments when you read a sentence, then go back and reread that sentence, then sit and ponder...
Dafuq did I just read?
Part of the problem with writing stream of consciousness the way I do is that one tends not to be quite so careful about words and word order and spelling when trying to get an idea down on paper... or digital paper, as the case may be.
Someimtes, when one is in a more rational frame of mind, one returns to the sentence(s) and it/they makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. I think I know what I was trying to say on those occasions. I'm fairly certain no one else will understand any of it.
Sigh. Editing this is going to be a nightmare! On the brighter side, I did manage to immerse myself in the world more and I'm getting to the tragic climax of the story. Which means I have to write a death I don't particularly want to write.
Warning, mother. I may call you in tears.
Right, I should get to work. Have a fantastic Thursday everyone!
