When I think about writing something, sometimes I think about the results that might or might not result, instead of the opportunity to explore. I think about whether it seems like a good idea.
I can understand that kind of thinking if there was some investment involved, like lumber. If you’re making chairs or birdhouses, maybe you should have a plan first. But creative writing doesn’t work that way. Not well. Well, maybe if you’re writing a novel … but even that is exploration.
Tonight I’m going to watch TV from 8:00 – to 9:00, then turn off the tube. From 9:00 – 11:00, I’m going to write something.
Results be damned.
By the way, still liking DarkRoom here.
