Some days it's like slogging through molasses

I know what the next scene is, and I can't get the bloody thing to start kicking over, so I spent the afternoon expanding and rewriting previous scenes. Now I'm going back to kick Act I, scene viii a little more and see if I can grind through to the guts.

It lies not in our power to love, or hate,
For will in us is over-rul’d by fate.

--Christopher Marlowe, Hero and Leander (I, l. 167-168)


Look how he can, she cannot choose but love;
And by her fair immortal hand she swears,

--William Shakespeare, Venus and Adonis (79-80)
