Not Feeling Like Writing
In the last couple of months, I haven’t been at all in the mood to write. And I’ve taken some time away from it.
However this week and last week, I did it anyway, which is more typically my strategy.
But I did it quickly, without looking back, without being very impressed, without much giving a damn.
Then in my regular feedback group today, I read the last week’s worth. (I hadn’t so much as looked it over since tapping out the rough draft.)
They liked it.
They thought it worked.
Intellectually I know that working with a light touch (not caring very much) can be very effective. The writing usually doesn’t sound labored, trying-too-hard.
But in the moment, writing while you don’t give a damn doesn’t feel like a good strategy. Not all that much fun either.
Nonetheless. I’ll be at it again tomorrow.
