What to do…Posted: October 20, 2011
Here I am, plotting and writing and struggling, and I realize that what I have outlined for this next book is complete and utter rubbish.
Really, I had a *great* idea. Great. Super great. Even had some really exciting race scenes, some good dynamic stuff, etc… Then, the back surgery happened and I had even more good stuff to use.
However. (and there’s always a ‘however,’ isn’t there?)
Now the new stuff doesn’t work with the old stuff. My original idea, while still good, doesn’t seem as ‘great’ as it once did. And the new stuff, while good and well-written (okay, little horn toot there), just doesn’t…work…with the old stuff. Or any stuff.
Or even on its own.
So, should I sit back and wait for the writing fairy to hit? What to do? What to do?
I’m really struggling and forcing it is not making it better. At all.
In fact, I am more lost than before.
Now’s the time for that writing mentor to come out of the woodwork.
