This is my new mantra. “Step one: Open story file. Step two: push a key…any key…on the keyboard and see where your fingers lead you.”
I know I worry too much about fabricating the perfect story, the perfect chapter, the perfect paragraph, the perfect sentence, selecting the perfect word. Sigh. I’m learning that perfection does not come in a single, brilliant, flash of inspiration (99.99% of the time). It would certainly simplify this avocation I’m destined to pursue.
