O is for ONE


During April, I’m blogging daily as a participant of the 
Blogging from A to Z in April Challenge (with time off on Sundays).
 Stay a minute. Read. Tell me what you think. Thanks for stopping by.
     It's a scary prospect, working on a new project. You wonder where it's going, what it's going to take to get to the end, and if you're the person capable of doing it justice. Everyday I procrastinate, mull over words, toss out whole paragraphs, trying to get it 'right'. The big picture — that complete manuscript —looms overhead like a black thundercloud.

"When asked 'How do I write?', I invariably answer 'one word at a time'."
                                                                                                                   - Stephen King

  1. That's all you can do! I think we need to stop second guessing and let the story show the way. Easier said than done though!

  2. Great Dawn! Yep, one word at a time!
    There's a lovely story about someone (I think Oscar Wilde) who was asked how his writing was going. He said he spent the morning writing one word, and the afternoon taking it out!

    1. Oh gosh. At least I can say I'm more productive than that! I shouldn't complain!

  3. That's it - one word at a time. It's such a long process!
