Time to Clock Out!

Tomorrow, I dive right back into the pool of words. I figure I'll have just about enough time to shell out the "Clocks" short story. One thing I've learned is that if you are writing a short story and nothing is coming - stop. Take a week. The idea will grow branches then you can just pick and choose what goes into the story.

Also, when you write - just write. Don't think. The first draft, I've found, is the shell of the story. You don't have to get it right the first time. Build a foundation for something to stand on and you are all set.

Writing = A pain and a joy.

He makes it look so easy.
