Well. Ok then. New Plan!
I have a different question.
What are your writing quirks?
I don't mean your physical writing quirks. Though, if you are only able to write sitting at your desk dressed in a pink tutu and a football jersey...yah. I wanna know about that.
I'm talking about your typing quirks. Have you noticed any? And now that I'm asking, have you noticed any that are now going to drive you batty? Bwahahah!
I was innocently typing along in my wip the other day and I noticed I do this thing.
You know how you have a running narrative in your head of what you're trying *desperately* to keep up with with as you're typing...but then sometimes you change your mind. Or sometimes you hit a snag.
In my head I'll have "With
a soft click his face swung open revealing a complex working of gears
and springs. Working quickly and with practiced strokes, he pressed a
combination of small latches and buttons hidden within his face." ... and then it's like my brain splits in two. I wanted two completely different things to happen. So I hit space. As you would. And stopped. Thinking.
Then when I decided how to continue, I backed up, DELETED the space. Hit space again and continued on. As though that space was suddenly no good! BAD SPACE!
Now that I know I do this, I notice I do it all the time. with commas, with words, but most often with the space that would start the beginning of a new sentence!
So! Do any of you have quirky writing habits?
Or am I all alone?
