Writers against themselves

There’s a weird Fight Club side to writing novels, I’m finding.

If I can’t think of the right word I leave a mark and move on because I don’t want to slow myself down as I’m banging fresh story out. However, I do this in full knowledge a future Jim months from now will stumble into these blanks as he edits and will of course have to pick up Now-Jim’s slack. He will come to detest Past-Jim (who is currently Now Jim).

But you know what? Sod Future-Jim. This is MY TIME!!!
