Knowing when it doesn't work

I've hit a dry spell writing- it's annoying- I can't get anything to talk to me, fanfiction or regular. But I finally hit on something Friday night, kept at it yesterday. I knew what I was trying to say with it, where I wanted it to go, but it started to fall apart on me. Getting another opinion, one I respect confirmed it.

Not everything I write is good- far from it in fact. But knowing when something isn't working is important. Sometimes I can salvage a project gone bad, sometimes not. For now, I'll shelve this mess with some notes incase I want to try it again. In the meantime, I might be able to use some pieces here and there.

It's not a total loss. I got some writing done. And it's got my mind moving again on a couple of projects I'd like to get going again. So I'll keep my fingers crossed and keep trying. Because even bad writing is better than not writing at all in my opinion.
