mood - writing is hard (arthur): kathyh

Writing Words of Wisdom

I need this right now:

“You have to write when you’re not inspired. And you have to write the scenes that don’t inspire you. And the weird thing is that six months later, a year later, you’ll look back at them and you can’t remember which scenes you wrote when you were inspired and which scenes you just wrote because they had to be written next.” ~ Neil Gaiman

Today's question: What is a character trait you despise in others, but you know you also have that same trait?
Haha, I can name plenty of traits I despise that I don't have (habitual tardiness, disorganization, manipulative), but something I have, too? That's harder. I'm going to say being pedantic. I've gotten annoyed with the kids more than once because they've corrected me on something I said or criticized me for being imprecise, but I realized about a year ago that I do the same thing so they learned it from me. Oops, lol.
