DAY 3 - Managed to get 2 hrs of bleeding. Caught myself trapped in the norm of the genre and thinking “this may not be appropriate” just because it’s never (or seldom) been done “this way” — until I remembered I was the freakin boss of my writing and while bleeding, I make my own rules. So I stuck with my initial obnoxiousness. When it’s a matter of gambling between breaking the norm or sticking to it, ALWAYS GO WITH YOUR GUT. Sometimes it’s true you make a mess by being messy, but others, you make art. Imagination is a risky business. HOW ARE YOUR SUPERPOWERS TODAY?

30 Days of Writing — The Daily Muse.
Writing is so difficult that I feel that writers, having had their hell on earth, will escape all punishment hereafter.
– Jessamyn West
