The shiny newness of the project hasn't worn off yet, and I'm still excited about being inside my characters' world. The words are halting at first (priming the pump has never been so taxing), but they do kick in eventually. I'd forgotten the simple pleasure of composing just for the hell of it. I'm reading over the pages I have, and every time that nagging little voice whispers in the back of my mind...
will this be good enough?
should I put it that way?
can I get this published?
what would an agent think?
would people buy this?
...I just reply with a big old "SHADDUP."
I'm trying to create just for the sake of creating. It's been a while since I took that ride; I want to see if it's as nice as I remember.
Of course, I haven't invested months in it yet, haven't agonized over plot points, haven't really gotten picky about word count yet. That comes later. After the shiny's worn off.
Yeah. This feels familiar.
