To feel better or crazy or to procrastinate, I counted up how many words of fiction I’ve written since 2004. I didn’t count false starts. I didn’t count cut scenes. I didn’t count blog posts. I didn’t count the first three stories I’ve written for A-Story-a-Day. Total counted: 550,769 words.
The final number disappointed me, but is no less overwhelming. What to do with so many words? How many are good words? All those words and not a single one published.
And here I go, writing a story a day as if it will add up to something. All these words should be sorted out, but I don’t know where to begin.
How would you begin?
