>Some words #100daysofwriting

>I was thinking about my writing and how it takes on a life of its own. Often I think I’ll go one way with it but once I start writing there’s another idea that comes to mind. Or it becomes clear that something I’d dismissed is much more important than I anticipated. The other part of that is when bits I thought were silly or stupid are strong or otherwise good when it comes to reading back.

I’ve lost track of what day this is but being that April 28th is day 100, I think today is day 74 of 100.

They’re more
Perhaps even
The start of
A book
