I’ve reached the murky middle.
I hate it here.
Trying to make decisions and writing this blog post has made me remember: just write, you can always fix it in revisions. If I screw up and do some part of my world-building that doesn’t work, I’ll undo it after I finish the first draft.
Whew, sigh of relief, and now I’m back to writing.

I am building a world, too. Enjoyed it day one and two. Then put it down for two days. Can not honestly say I want to pick it back up today. Can honestly say I want to want to pick it back up today. Think I will just power through the first few words and see where that leads.
Glad you are writing.
I hated writing today. Hated, hated, hated it. Words written, words deleted, more words written, more words deleted. Headache, cranky, feeling as if I should do all sorts of other things and definitely give up on the writing. But I persisted and at 5:00, I realized that I had 1400 words and a perfect end to a chapter. I actually laughed out loud when I read it back to myself. Writing is honestly about keeping going even when it’s miserable. So power through those first few words, force yourself to sit still for half an hour in front of the screen, and see where it takes you!
