Had some computer issues this morning, but got restarted and working. Nice session and got 1000+ words in. The censor/critic comes in afterwards saying it’s far too explicit, too non-mainstream, hardly marketable, etc. The critic says afterwards you will always be a failure, never find an audience, that the words are crap.
But during the session the critic is blessedly silent and the characters speak, telling their story in the way that feels like the best way — the necessary way, the only way — to tell it.
And I am just the messenger.
