Hmmm well it’s going. I always hate the story as I’m writing it. I’m not sure why, but it’s my thing now. I can’t seem to help it. I loathe every word, think it’s the worst piece of shit ever. I finish a story and think this will be my last because I’m going to get fired for writing crap.

And then this weird things happen. I pick up the book later and I read it and I don’t remember writing THIS story. I can’t remember why I hated it so much. It’s like someone else wrote it. I’m just waiting for the day, however, when I hate it all the way through and STILL hate it when I pick it up later. Then I’m screwed.

I’m not sure if I love or hate Songbird yet. I don’t think I’m far enough into it where it hits me. I love it in theory. Love the concept and story arc, but what’s in my head is always a far cry from getting it down on paper. Sometimes it makes it, sometimes it doesn’t. :dunno:

    While I haven’t written any books, I had similar experiences when writing my research papers for my classes. I always thought they sounded horrible, but I always ended up getting good grades on them and thinking they were pretty good when I read them after getting them back.
