I am bad at writing. Most people are, in different ways. My personal writing deficiencies stem from getting stuck in planning, and planning, and planning, and outlining and researching and re-outlining and never actually writing. It’s infuriating, so I’m fixing the problem by wildly overcompensating. I will be writing a serialized fictional story titled “it’s a living” with updates every Tuesday, and I’m not allowed to plan.
Here is a screenshot of the notes I made before beginning this story: And that’s it. That’s all she wrote. I did more planning to go to Kroger today than I’m doing for this story.
So, if you want to watch a struggling writer beat their old bad habits into the ground while probably creating fun, new bad habits, join me here every Tuesday for “it’s a living.”
