Things like this post from Brian Clark over at Copyblogger.com make me grin.
With National Novel Writing Month just around the corner, I’m reminding myself that all writing is good writing. Will the words I churn out for NaNo be masterpieces? Um… No. I will settle for coherent and possibly spelled correctly. Later rewrites will make them pretty. For now, I’m gearing up to stitch together a Frankenstein’s monster of a book. A little scarred, a little green, and probably quite manky and smelly. A book only a mother, or mad scientist could love.
Why, if I know in advance that I’m about to create a monsterpiece, do I bother?
Because every word placed on the page is another step toward being a better, stronger, faster (possibly BIONIC) writer. The result is not necessarily publishable writing, but it’s good for the practice it gives.
What are you writing this week?
