So I'm 35k into the second book of my MMA series and I'm starting to hit the midway blues. This is the point where I start doubting everything I've written up to this point. I do it with every book. The only thing I've learned to do is write through it. It may be utter crap when I'm done, but at least I'll have something to work with.
I needed inspiration last night, so I watched the UFC 145 prelims. It was definitely inspiring. Watched a fantastic fight between Matt Brown and Stephen Thompson. These are the fights I love. Two men giving it everything they got until the very end. It wasn't one-sided. One didn't dominate the other. It wasn't fifteen minute of dancing around each other, or them constantly in a clench. It was a fight to win. The aftermath was brutal, but even though the fight went to a decision, both men could still be proud of what they'd accomplished.
Anyway, it's jazzed me up. I'm ready to tackle writing today. I have a hero preparing for a comeback fight with the man that stole his title. I'm looking forward to writing it!
