brooding

Posted on Posted in asides, journal, pre-crash, writing life

The ever-so-clever Rju has a post up about the momentum behind not writing:

The hardest thing isn't to write – it's to keep writing.

I'd quote more, but there isn't anything snippetable without stealing the entire passage. Suffice to say, that final Brood. Brood. Brood. made me want to both grind my teeth and laugh, it was so right.

  1. I'm not a writer, per se, but I've been trying to be diligent in writing on my blog, and Rju is sooo right! The longer you put off that post, the more distractions seem to pop up and the further behind you get. That urge to "brood" can be so overwheling and demanding! Best just to take the author's advice and just write and keep writing… Good advice.

  2. Tell me about it. If I'm writing diligently, my blogging slips. If I'm blogging, it's because I'm not writing. Some people would say perhaps I should concentrate on just the one, but where's the potential for insanity in that?
