Writing, Or Lack Of

Okay, so…I’m supposed to be doing the 2 PAD challenge.  I started it a few days ahead of time, just to give myself some leeway for those days I might not get to write.  Which in reality is a poor ass excuse because I typically write at night anyway.  I just manage find distractions to make procrastinating easier. 

Anyway, I’ve been dragging my feet on writing for the challenge.  I don’t believe I’ve fallen behind yet.  If I have it’s only by a couple of pages or so.  I’d have to go count them.  I’m writing by hand in a notebook.  I love going old school to write!  I think part of what’s worrying me, hindering me is that I keep dwelling on what if I run out of stuff to write for it.

Here’s the gist of it:  I’m writing out childhood/teenage/young adult years memories and traumas from a MC point of view.  The MC has ended up in a mental hospital (how or why she’s there has yet to be fleshed out completely).  No, I’ve never been institutionalized.  My character is there for the sake of story purposes only.  Though if you ask my ex, he would say I need to be commited….just saying. 

I want to weave a story around her as she tries to remember her life and what happened to her.  But she’s kept drugged and even through the haze of medications she is kept on, she is realizing this place and her reason(s) for being there aren’t what they seem.  Now I know this has the potential for many directions.  The other characters are somewhat sketchy in my head at this point. 

I haven’t had the worst life in the world by any means.  But the shit I’ve been through has helped to form me into the person I am today.  Some of it I still need to heal from emotionally.  Emotional and psychological scars are some of the hardest to heal from.  Writing memories out seems to have a healing affect.

Regardless of my consistency at this point, I am writing a lot more than I have in a very long time.  It really feels good to put pen to paper and see words flow out.
