When is 5 really 25?

When I stare and stare at the page and don’t actually write anything for ages. Tonight was one of those nights. My 5-minute rule is based on the idea of 5 minutes of actual writing. Just thinking doesn’t count.*

As long as I hold myself to the writing requirement, though, I eventually turn up something good. As happened tonight. The incremental process has been more of a drawback recently, resulting in some interesting but not really cohesive progress. Tonight, I was able to untangle the mess and get back on track I think.

I hope.


* It’s good and often necessary before the writing commences, but it can’t count towards the writing requirement, otherwise, I’d spend all my time thinking and hardly get any writing done.
