You Can’t Edit a Blank Page


This is one of the most important things a writer can remember, and I forgot it.

I’ve been taking a break from my writing so as to look at it with fresh eyes when my brain had recharged.  But that’s not how writing works.

(This is not to be confused with the advice from a previous post where I go so far as to say take a step back, put it out of your mind, and/or straight up forget it.  I still believe that to be true.  However, while you’re putting that on the back burner you have to still be writing something.)

Writing is oftentimes a frustrating, reward-less task that renders only gibberish for your efforts.  Despite all that I love it and know that I am lucky to have the talent for stringing the alphabet together in a way that grabs at a person’s imagination.

So I’m diving back into my writing.  I have 40k words to add to Seer 2 and they won’t (sadly) add themselves.  I have been informed that I have to write them myself and cannot rely on finding a genie to wish them into existence.

With that being said, I am going to take a step back from the ambitious goal of three posts per week so that I can focus on Seer.  Do you guys have a preference on whether I post on Mondays or Thursdays?  If you do, let me know.  If not I’ll draw days out of a giant glass bowl, Hunger Games style, and decide that way.  Just kidding.  Or am I?

Bye for now!

Side note: If anyone knows of a genie who is interested in dispensing some consequence-free wishes then hit me up.
