I am supposed to have a man come out today to measure the door to my apartment. I need to replace my door, which is a large patio door, with something that is more energy efficient…and which works. What does this have to do with writing? Nothing! It’s just another excuse to procrastinate!
On the other hand, I have to sit here and wait for the man to show up so it is a good reason to just sit in front of my computer and work on my story. I am getting into the section of the Blake-Snyder beat structure where all the bad guys close in and tension builds. It should be fun to write this section, but as usual I focus on the darker side of the universe. I need to make sure that the action makes sense and all the plot elements flow smoothly.
It’s all work…and it’s all fun. I love being a writer!
It’s a lot more fun than getting a new door, that’s for sure.
