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!
