I did another little bit this afternoon. Officially I’m at 11580, although I’ve got another 500 or so words written in the scene I’m currently (not) working.
I got an email from a municiple liason today in which she talked about Week Two and how it’s said to be the hardest week of Nano. She said, amongst other things, that Week Two is the week in which you may come to feel that you are writing the worst novel ever.
And I thought, nah. For one thing, I’m pretty sure I’ve already written the worst novel ever, so this probably isn’t it, and besides that, I’ve read an awful lot of crap in my life which often serves to make me feel better.
Then, just now, BAM. It hit me. I was sitting here, pondering something other than Nano for a while, and next thing I know
Damn! My story totally sucks.
So I don’t know, either I need to figure out how to fix it up, or I just need to get over it and move on.
Anyone else have this happen this week?
