Anything. I accept that what I write that day may not be prose, or lines of dialogue, or clean and clear narrative. It may be notes, or a revision, or an outline. That's still writing, and I can say I've written. Sometimes that's what I need when I've reached a block. However, even one sentence - one messy sentence, one that I know will be changed - is better than writing nothing. Keep writing.(less)

Some Thoughts on “I’ll Be Gone in the Dark” and Obsessive Fixations

Is anyone else watching HBO’s “I’ll Be Gone in the Dark”? It’s based on the late Michelle McNamara’s book of the same name, which in turn is about the hunt for the Golden State Killer (one that ended after the book was released).
