Fake it 'til you make it

My latest work-in-progress, the Lithuanian folktale, is such fun to write and research. But the writing is bad. Really bad. I keep hollowly assuring myself that it's a first draft and it's supposed to be poor, but it's little solace when I have the music in my head and can't put it on paper. I'll work through it, but right now the rough draft feels more like an outline than actual writing because it's so incredibly, horrifically sub-par. Fake it until I make it, I guess...

And keep moving on.

Meanwhile, we have so much snow at our house that I can't get out of my driveway. Cabin fever is incrementally creeping in....
