In Anne Lamott's book, Bird by Bird, she said the first step to writing is to write a crappy (she used a different word) first draft. I am so excelling at that step.
As I sat down and wrote another chapter, I bored myself. Suddenly, an hour felt like two. Every minute expanded as the time went by slowly as I hacked out another paragraph. I had found a way to slow down time; write a crappy book. Not only that, but reading it back also slowed down time. I think I have a marketing idea.
"Time going too fast? Slow it down by reading my book. Every minute will feel like an hour!"
Think it will sell?
Not all of it was terrible. But I did find a note in part of one chapter that said, "(this is getting boring)" so apparently my boring writing has happened before. There were about 3-4 chapters that I did like out of all the ones I tried to flesh out. I'm not sure what this will mean to the book yet. There's a few more chapters that I need to
Hopefully things will get better. I think I need to find Lamott's book and find out what to do with a crappy first draft.
