I’ve got a program that spots typos and the occasional MIA comma in my public posts installed. And apparently it also calculates my effectiveness in all my document drafts. It sent me a personalized email today stating this week’s yield:
8818 words written
You were more active
than 94% of Grammarly users.
Very few were written here in this column – for publication. Several hundred words, however, are sitting in the ‘draft’ folder waiting to be headlined and blossom into brilliance.
I wrote some of my bounty that Grammarly noted in response to proposals for new work requests.
Other fine words were tapped out to fulfill those orders.
Most were not immediately profitable yet served a purpose.
Admittedly, I may have been slowed by the civic holiday that transformed a good portion of the week, into a long weekend.
What stalls your writing?
Where is the snag in the process for you? At the start? Mid way? or……… In the home stretch towards a first completed draft?
Inscribing minds want to know.
Please share your comments below. You might just help out other writers with your experience, and maybe you’ve come upon a solution, too?
I wish I knew who to attribute this little ‘dramady’ of thought that engulfs us while we attempt to create…. in a single cell cartoon – a fave often found on Facebook.
