The landslide.

I’m quite familiar with erosion. It all starts gradually, things falling bit by bit… and then eventually after stress, the whole hillside caves way. It’s the same with writing.

Whenever I start things like Script Frenzy, I start strong. I keep to my quota for a few days. Then, I fall a page behind. I try to make it up, but the next day, I’m still a page short… until I find I’m 10 pages behind and feel like quitting.

I’m behind, but this time, I’m not giving up. Somehow, someway, I’ll make it up. Not because I want to “win” and be thrilled about that- but because I’m tired of being the person who lives on a hillside and keeps being surprised when they evacuate due to threat of mudslide or landslide. 2010 is about changing old habits for me, and this is certainly a problem.
