This afternoon I spent a lovely hour with my Surface in the library. I can't exactly say I was writing because all I netted out was 159 words. I wrote, perhaps 1000. I deleted about 841.
Writing is all about getting ideas on paper. It is also about editing. If I sit down with a blank Word document, I am able to spew 1000 words in less than an hour. BUT. If I look at those 1000 words tomorrow I am liable to delete 841.
Some writers measure their productivity by how many words they get on paper in a day. I measure mine on how many I net out. Today was definitely abysmal. Perhaps tomorrow will be better.
