What does one do when one has a perfectly good story-line going, and then messes it up with three different trajectories? I am not sure any of them are the ‘right one’ or if somehow they all belong together. I had wanted to be long done with this project – surely 2 months is adequate time for writing a short novella? Or perhaps not, for a first-timer. I’m aggravated, dejected and frustrated. Unsure that taking a week off (which I’ll have to do this week out of necessity) will be any help at all, and worried that it’ll be another hindrance. I want to move on to another story-line I have in mind. And yet, I can’t. Not until this is complete. It’s an unfortunate character trait that I never move on to the next book until the current one is finished – and this is in reading. How much worse when it’s in writing them!
Wish me luck – it’s going to be a long week – all my mind on this incomplete project, and no time to write, nor a computer to write with. I’ll just hope that it’s a great time away, and I’ll come back rejuvenated and energized to my project.
