Chapter 25 got done last night and it was pretty darn good. Not perfect, probably, but some good action, some good dialog and good emotion. I could have gone on and finished chapter 26, I had time, but I got depressed and quit for the night. Nothing writing-related, for once.
That is something I need to choke down, the feeling of 'I've done enough for tonight, I'm done'. If I'm going to write professionally, I need to push past that kind of resistance and write and edit and finish my tasks on time. It's hard to do, even when you know it's your mind throwing up roadblocks. When you have a lot to do in short period of time, be it at work or writing, my brain just wants to quit, to shut down. I have to fight it.
Ah well, if writing was easy, everyone would do it.
