Writing Garbage or Inspiration?

Everyone encourages us to write every day so we, the unpublished writers, follow the advice of the published authors, prepare to write, and then sit at our desks ready for the juices to flow.

And we wait.

And we wait until we bang on the key board until finally the words come through our fingertips and the whiteness of the screen fills with words. We go as far as we can in one sitting and feel that elation when we produce these words on paper.

Unfortunately, more often then we care to admit, when we review our work we realize that it was so forced that 95% is garbage and only 5% can be used.

Luckily that tiny amount can be deemed inspirational merely for the reason that we got something out of the exercise.

So my fellow writers take that five percent of successful writing and run with it!
