Writers’ Block Moments: Ugh. Does all day count? Some days are so much worse than others and I can’t really figure out why yet. Haven’t gotten the pattern down. I’m sure that part of the panic stems from getting started too late though.

Late Nights: 0

Snippet: *Frowns*

Notes: Today I did some more rereading. Instead of reading my old notes, I reread one of my last attempts at a manuscript for this story. I was actually rather satisfied with some of it, and I wondered when I stopped writing quite like that. Maybe I haven’t changed much, actually, at least not as much as I think I have. Maybe that feeling’s all in my head. A part of me doesn’t think so, though, and that’s depressing.

I would be lying if I said that I felt like sitting here and crunching out that prose. I got started at nearly ten o’clock, and I was so tired at that point. I could have started earlier, sure, but I hadn’t been able to pull myself together to concentrate. Plus, all that reading really got me thinking about the quality of this draft, but I think that’s a note best left written tomorrow.
