On writing II

Sometimes, writing for a living is like being a student again and doing homework. There are some projects that you know you'll ace the minute they land in your lap.

And then there are others where upon receiving the project/assignment, you know with a sunken certainty that no matter how much time you put into it and how many braincells you expend and how many cups of coffee you gulp down, it's still gonna be a shitty piece of work when you finally "finish" it.

Guess which kind I've got in front of me right now.

i'm sure you'll puke it out somehow. writing is so subjective sometimes... i'm sure you'll find that couple of versions you can bear without cringing.

That is soooo true. But sometimes you never know, and may surprise yourself - even if you hate it, someone else thinks it's brilliant.
