When you start trying to rewrite the same passage for more than two hours then take a break.
I so wish I could follow this advice.
But I take it as a personal insult.
Well...maybe I should explain. The problem is that they escape my control. And really they do. They slip out of the purpose I want out of them. The little tiny buggers.
And I know my brain can handle many things, and least of all ridiculous words. I am not asking it to re-create the equation of the Big Bang here, or re-invent the wheel.
You see my problem.
I am thinking why can't I get it right?
They are only words.
I just need to put them in the right order.
Granted that the possibilities in orders are many and multiple but mind won't be beaten over matter.
It is just not right
Yet there it is.
I am giving up.
At least for today.
Words have won.
