After several days of stewing and writing various outlines and interviews with characters and obsessing, I think I’ve finally hit that point where I say: screw it. I’m writing this damn thing regardless of whether or not everything at this point makes sense. Maybe I’ll have to rewrite a lot of it in the future (maybe = definitely), but for now, my main goal is to get something on paper, because there aren’t any easy answers to be found right now, and I can’t keep stalling. The work will out, I suppose.

I really, really, REEEEEEEALLY wanted to post tonight: “I’ve decided to skip today and swap it for Sunday, since I’ll have time on Sunday, and blah blah blah,” but I just…couldn’t quite do it. When I get into a rhythm, I really need to keep with it, otherwise any habit I’ve formed falls instantly apart, and it becomes so much easier to not work. I’ve got my weekend, anyway, and I need those days to just…not. But weekdays, those are work days, whether I know what I’m doing or not. (Hint: I don’t. At all.)
