To quote Pooh Bear, “Oh, bother! “ Has this ever happened to you? You get a bright and shiny idea for a new story, and want to dive right in, except there are a lot of other things you need to get out of the way first before you’ll be able to focus on the new story. So you do your best imitation of the White Tornado, race around until all the subliminal clutter is eliminated, and voila… you’re ready to write. Except now that you’ve had time to ponder your idea it no longer seems so shiny.
Or, perhaps you’ve managed to ignore all the distracting chores and jump right into developing that idea. And you write. And you write. And then you sit back after about 5,000 words and realize it wasn’t such a great idea after all.
Yeah, it happens, and I think maybe that’s why I find this video so hilarious.
