Coming up for air…

This has been my first week of Christmas vacation (I have 3 weeks total) and I’ve been plotting and writing like a fiend. I managed to get 62 pages written on a new story and pages upon pages of notes/outlines and then – I hit a roadblock. A major one. The story stalled 2 days ago and I’ve been struggling to get words down. Today, I trashed the outline and started over, re-writing an extensive synopsis that works.

Sadly, I had to gut the story. It was painful beyond the telling of it and I’m left with a mere 18 pages. **head desk, rub and repeat.**

The story is a paranormal, in case you’re wondering. I’m doing my first werewolf story. That’s probably why I’m having such issues with it. Playing in a new sandbox isn’t easy. It’s fun, but difficult. To me it is, anyway.

Okay, I should be writing instead of procrastinating. LOL I’ve added a few polls to the right to liven the page up a bit so, if you’re so inclined to give me a few minutes of your time I would appreciate it!

  1. Congrats Lily!!That first christmas is #2 highest rated on Fictionwise today. YOU go girl!!

    and what you’re going through, I do too. You’re overthinking everything. Just relax, get to know the main character, let them guide you through the plot. And good luck, youll do fine.
