Writing something crappy is better than writing nothing at all. No one can edit an empty page.
Sigh. It's not the first time I've come to this conclusion. Only, I'd fallen into the rut of not writing because I was too afraid of what comes next. But conclusions are conclusions. And so I wrote, again.
Second drafts are such lovely things. I really do love to do rewrites. But this rewrite feels more like a first draft than any rewrite I've ever done. And first drafts are hard for me.
But once it's written, I can edit it. And the scene that I wrote (or rewrote?) is funny, which is good. My characters needed a breather.
On another note, I went and saw AVENGERS with my brothers Iggy and Gus. And may I just say - the special effects were TREMENDOUS, the funny moments were PRICELESS... but the story had some plot holes that didn't get filled for me. Which I've come to expect from superhero movies, but I'd hoped for better from something that's gotten this much attention and earned this much money.
Personally, my top three favorite superhero movies are probably...
1. Batman Begins (Turns out, this is my sister's favorite too.)
2. Spider Man I and II (NOT three. Nooooot three.)
3. HULK (The first one they did. I loved that it was more of a drama. The second one was kind of lame.)
What's your favorite?
