Stuff I Know 2 – Boredom

stuff I know v2If you’re bored while writing something, then it’s not going to be anything anyone wants to read.

You’ll probably realize this, think to yourself oh, I’ll work on this later, and go find a beer or some stupid cat pictures or something. Yeah, cuz that’s the sure path to progress.

Instead, keep working. Delete that whole boring thing. Write the nest par that is exciting to you. The next part that matters, even if you thought it was chapters away. Maybe it isn’t meant to be. Maybe you’re writing a novella, not a novel. Who knows? Later on, you’ll get an idea how to bridge the gap with as few words as possible.

Most editing is deletion. Save yourself time, and don’t write garble that even you think is boring. Get to the good suff.
