Writing has not been going the smoothest lately. In addition to all the demands on me and my time, the story has been stuck. There was something I wanted to achieve in the story, but couldn’t figure out how to make that work.
I’ve been thinking and thinking about it, until the solution walked up and slapped me in the face. It’d been standing there waving at me, and I couldn’t see it. So I know how I want that part to turn out.
And I’ve decided I’m going to skip over one set of scenes and move on in the story. I know how I want those to turn out too, but the way to make it happen eludes me. Since I know what the outcome is supposed to be, I can write past these and continue on with the story.
Now, because I am doing that, I fully expect this section forward will probably require extensive rewrites when I finally write those scenes. Who knows what I will find when I do write them and what impact those things will have on the rest of the story?
It feels good to work on my story, even if it’s all in my head. The time to write is coming few and far between right now, but I’ll get it there eventually. I really want to tell this story.
