inner critic  
Man, the NaNoWriMo is killing me. I think I've lost the ability to just write and write without being critical of what's coming out. Now, I just keep deleting and rewriting the same stuff over and over again, because none of it's good enough. I need a drug to kill my inner critic... or at least put it to sleep for a while.

Listening to: Sukpatch - "Hollow Tips"

Any particular booze?

whatever your pleasure.

Well, that's no good, trying to write something decent!

How many words do you have? What's your username there? Will you be my "writing buddy"? Circle one:

Depends. Does "writing buddy" mean you'll write it for me? If so, yes!

I'm stuck at 1787... which makes me what? Two days behind? Three?

Depends wasn't an option, foo. (Unless we were discussing incontinence, but I'm pretty sure we weren't.)

It's early, though. You have plenty of time to up the count. Unless you keep revising as you go! Stop that!

I'm getting very good at making long sentences that mean absolutely nothing in the grand scheme of the story.


I spent all day yesterday trying to make the thing 'flow' and be interesting. Now I'm just typing out any ol drivel.

Anything to up that count!

I can't even think about flow right now. Flow is like an impossible goal for me in this project.

Dude, I would be completely willing to let the evil spirits write this for me. In a heartbeat!

Sukpatch! I almost forgot about them. Gotta go dig out that album from my CD-shelf now.

You and me both, brother.

I have no idea what you're trying to write anyway; novel; genre, etc.but if most of it isn't in your head anyway, and you don't have a plan, even if you're Jack Kerouac, it is unlikely to happen. I'm a quondam script editor, and would be happy to give you an informed response, but, hey - it's your baby.

Re: writer's blonk
Thanks. I'm not sure when this is going to be ready though. May be quite a while....
