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.
