The End of October Writing Challenge

As the mortar shells explode around me (I believe they are called fireworks) I am forced to admit I am a failure. As Buster from AD would say (waving his hook hand at me) 'Loser! Loser!'. I didn't succeed in finishing Til the Moon Fails before the end of the month. Overwhelmed by the enormity of the task, I barely even got started. So it rolls on to month number five. Don't worry, TTMF fans, I will continue working on it through November (as well as writing my NaNoWriMo novel). I probably won't get it finished in November, but all things going well, please God, I will finish it in December.

I have decided to label October 2006 as the black writing month, or the month of literary drought (otherwise known as writer's block and sometimes Failurism).

Is it failurism? I thought you were just overwhelmed by the amount of work you had to do, especially as ML, and also due to being sick?

Were they just disguises for the dreaded F word?????

I didn't think it was Failurism until I read the fight against failurism and it described my systoms perfectly.

That was a distant but dangerous cousin - called procrastination!
