Holy bueno writing, Batman!!! That was marvelous!!

Playing on iTunes: "Cigarettes and Chocolate Milk" by Rufus Wainwright

I have been avoiding writing this particular chapter for almost two weeks now. Really, it was that bad. I think the problem is, I keep getting my heroin stuck in certain precarious circumstances that I don't know how to get her out of. What's odd, though, is that in this case...it was just a simple issue of getting her from one place to another with no money. I had NO idea how I was going to do this.

Today, I decided I needed to just sit down and do it. Just write. It would come. It felt a lot like getting on an elevator only to have a seven year old hit every button between floors one and ten...but I did it. And I'm proud. And it was probably one of my favorite chapters to write once I got going.

The first paragraph looked a bit rough. "The sun was hot. She saw stuff. It was pretty." Yeah....like I said....floors one through ten. *sigh* It picked up speed once I got her on her way, though. And I must say, the cab chase was quite thrilling!! :) Cabbies are fast and really, really mean when you don't pay them!!

(I think Cab Ass'n should stand for Cab Assassin....hence the photo.)

Congrats! Writers block is completely evil.

(When I saw that photo I immediately thought Cab Assassin, which shows how my mind works)

YAY for writing tough chapters. I wrote a tough chapter myself today (which might just suck, but I'll leave that for later, lol). Congrats on getting through it!

That makes me think of "Cab Assin," like hopping from cab to cab.
