Difficult to believe it's the last weekend of summer though the cool night temperatures is proving the calendar correct. The days are flying by. I felt like a I did a lot of work this week but then yesterday I decided my WIP was missing the mark somewhere. My characters need some work if I want readers to care about them. So I'm starting OVER. And I feel like I'm doing the right thing. Some scenes will remain mostly intact but most of them are hitting the trash.
A fall fact from my trusty Old Farmer's Almanac planner. The average person eats about 19 pounds of apples each year. Seems like a lot to me but I do almost always have some in the house.
And a Chinese proverb. Teachers open the door, but you must enter yourself.
And in case you think you're not getting paid enough for your writing here's a fact. Pennsylvania General Assembly clerk Jacob Shallus was paid $30 to pen the Constitution. This past Wednesday was Constitution Day in case you missed that.
Today's quote about writing. Apologies to my California readers but this is a little bit funny.
There’s no such thing as writer’s block. That was invented by people in California who couldn’t write.
Are you eating your share of apples? What would you have charged to write the Constitution? Do you believe in writer's block? Ready for fall?
