Today’s video game narrative writing assignment was dialogue to motivate a character leaping between rocks along a cliff.

...my script involved collecting unobtainium.
And licking rocks for mineral ID.

Write what you know, eh?
I had a moment of panic when the prof announced the in-class assignment.

“I don’t write fiction! I can’t do this! I’m taking this class to learn how to imagine instead of report!”

But the clock was ticking as my cursor blinked, so I typed, deleted, revised, rewrote.
Its ok to have a shit first draft.
Every first draft is shit.

Turn it in to a better second draft, even if it’s only minutes later.

Then edit, edit, & edit again. Edit until you run the clock out, because you’ll never be done making it better but you can ge done enough.
