Just Do It!

I spend waaayyy too much time thinking. Analyzing so that I don't waste time or words. I've wasted the last month worrying and analyzing how my book would change or how to make it bigger and I haven't even finished it yet! Sheesh. Does anyone else have this problem? Probably.

I need a Nike T-shirt to remind me to JUST DO IT! BUCHOK!

*smacks Marley's knuckles with a ruler* Don't worry about how to make it bigger yet. Not until you're finished your first draft. My first drafts are ALWAYS far shorter than my second which are shorter than my third. (you KNOW that's true!) Just tell the story, THEN go back and decide if it needs to be bigger. Or smaller. Or tighter.

And yes, you know I overanalyze things to death too--you're not alone. Maybe we should start a self-help group Over-Analyzers Anonymous?

stikes me you know what to do, Marley you just need to stop listening to the "what if" voice of worry and do the thing. Then as Leah says you can get to work on draft no2. But then you knew that anyway, huh?

Yes, thanks to butt kicking friends I finally sat down to write that Friggin scene.
