Allow Me To Ramble On Once More…

I’m full of cold and DamLOL is consuming my life! Of course DamLOL is only the most recent in my series on procrastinator tools but it’s pretty effective at sucking up hours. Does this mean I delete the app from my ipod? Of course not. I miss out on the funny pictures then and what use would that be?

On the whole I’ve not been that unproductive. I’ve written a couple thousand more words for Darkened Daughter, and the plot-line is really starting to emerge. I also don’t seem to hate everything I wrote. I’m going to count that as a win for my skill as a writer. If I can stand my work then I must be improving right?

Don’t get me wrong. I’m regularly re-reading pieces of flash-fiction and thinking to myself wow, I’m really awesome at this, but for anyone who read this blog at the start you will know that there are chunks of writing I removed because they simply are not good enough to reach the standard anymore. Especially as I started churning out flash fiction more regularly my ability has a written has improved dramatically. The secret? I wrote. A lot! You think this blog is full of words then you should check the poor dying hard-drive of my laptop for all the bits I don’t put up or don’t finish. And as I write more I’ll no doubt improve further. That’s the way it works.

So to all you writers out there reading this, how do you feel about practice makes perfect? (Or at least a hell of a lot better.)
