    Hey friends! As stated above i am doing a writing Marathon today.  I’ve been procrastinating too much on this story even though i know i cab write it.

    So please join me at 2-3:30 Central time (I’m in TX). You are welcome to do short bits of it,  or use it for brainstorming. Its not a race,  is a challenge to push yourself where you know you’ve been lacking.

    Just write. Write one word, then another. You’ll have a sentance, one paragraph. Take a deep breath.  You can do this.  Let the words be your voice, let them bleed out from your heart.

    Don’t lock em in because they’re just not good enough now.  We get so afraid of ruining the story just by putting words on the page. But if their never there you can’t work on then to make them better. You can’t edit a blank page.

    So writers with stories burning in them,  will you join me?  (Please tag your friends!)

      @katthewriter This sounds great! I’ve got some homework to do and am writing right now, but I’ll see if I can pop in for a little bit! 😉

      6 minutes till it beguins!! This is where you get your water or coffee, or whatever you drink, and you stock up on chocolate and tissues, and get your notebooks, random pens and pencils, outlines, maybe some writing music, all those wonderful things you need to make writing that will make your readers die *coughs* i mean make your readers love you. XD

        @katthewriter Right! *quickly mixes readers’ tears into hot chocolate* All set! Hope Ann’s favorite flavoring is amazing, let me tell you.

        I’ll probably be here for about half an hour. 😉

          @katthewriter At least you are! 😀 My characters certainly aren’t at the moment. I’m on my second draft, and–

          Tai: We already lived through this once! Why do it again?!

          Me: To make it better.

          Tai: You mean make it worse. You said yourself you’re trying to make [insert painful scene here] more “poignant.” Which means you’re trying to make us miserable.

          Me: @kari-karast . . . Tai’s being a problem child. . .

          Tai: I wouldn’t be if you weren’t a problem writer!

          IF YOU ARE THINKING YOU STILL CAN NOT WRITE REMEMBER:

          “THE FIRST DRAFT IS JUST TELLING YOURSELF THE STORY”

          “YOU CAN MAKE ANYTHING BY WRITING”

          “START WRITING. NO MATTER WHAT. THE WATER DOES NOT FLOW TILL YOU TURN THE FAUCET ON”

            *buckles down* Tai, I’m going to ignore you now. It’s time to write this insane book.

            @naiya-dyani Oh dear. *sends ninja just in case*


            @katthewriter
            Alright! I’m rereading through some of my writing to help me remember where I’m going with the story, but then I’ll be writing. XP

            @katthewriter I am also re-reading!  I don’t have a ton to re-read, though, so I should be writing very soon!  I just need to remember what Rainbow has been doing so I know what her next move will be.
