Well, I gave it my best shot.
Today was even worse than yesterday. After I made my blog post, I at least was able to write another 1,200 words, but for what? The comments came in this morning on the first chapter for critique that I'd posted yesterday, and the consensus? Bin it, nothing worth saving. One guy said there was absolutely no grace to my sentence structure. In other words, can't string together two words.
I am now giving up writing, period.
Thank-you for reading.
