Not a pep-talk.
Did a little writing, maybe half a page, but I need to spend more time on this scene, because it’s supposed to be a very . . . impressive scene, a moment with some genuine teeth to it, so to speak.
That said, this is one of those challenges I mentioned recently that I gave myself in this last stretch of writing, and I’m not sure I’m up to it. I’m trying to avoid trying too hard, which sounds like an oxymoron and, therefore, self-defeating.
Excellent. Glad we had this talk.
