I would hurl words into this darkness and wait for an echo, and if an echo sounded, no matter how faintly, I would send other words to tell, to march, to fight, to create a sense of hunger for life that gnaws in us all. ~Richard Wright, American Hunger, 1977
Pft, I couldn't put it any better than that now could I.
But is this the reality during a challenge such as the 50k in 30day?
I would like to think so. At the moment my plan is to just write, get the story, the guts, the heart of the story down and then I can add the putty and fluff of senses and powerful word usage that bring the story to vivid life for the reader.
I hate housework after the party but I believe this is the best analogy I can come up with, make the mess, enjoy the moment, relish in what it has to offer and then when you've drank enough, kissed the boy, made a date for the morrow and your guests all had the best time of their lives- then you can clean up. Mop the sloppy grammar, throw the rubbish (that, just, it's) in the bin and polish until it's perfect.
This is my plan for June, to write a beautiful mess and excitedly await that special kiss. lol
Happy reading and writing
