Are you like me? Do you write until your interest just peters out? There are times when I write I feel like I'm pushing further down a narrowing hallway only to get stuck without any more momentum or interest in continuing. It doesn't last. I just come to a corner and stop, and come back later when the corner seems to have disappeared. Whenever I do this my writing gets noticeably lazier. There is the basic sentence with generic verbs. I don't even try. For example, if I had a character who ran across the freeway needed to dodge cars before getting to the burning building at the other end, my lazy sentence would read something similar to what you just read. Bobby jumps over the fence and dodges cars and gets to the burning building. That whole action should probably take at least a good paragraph, if not more; but since I just want it down on paper before I forget it, I basically write the blueprint, hoping that I will go back later and fill in all that necessary prose and stuff.
Is that writing or note taking? And can I count it in my daily word count?
