But I deleted it.
My thoughts in that post were so scattered, I was trying something new and I don’t feel like it worked for me.
I was rambling about being lazy and trying to figure out where I was going with my book next, but ultimately I already knew the answer I needed.
I can’t honestly be the only person who knows what they need to do, but asks for advice on what to do hoping that others will say it’s ok to do the opposite.
Well I do that a lot, and that’s exactly what that post was, but I digress.
On to the next.
I haven’t written in 4 days because I had no clue where the story was going anymore. EVERYTIME I came up with a new idea it wouldn’t work because it would crash with a previous idea.
Yup, that’s right, I felt like I was cheating in some way.
Before you start, yes I realize that all idea are created equal and can be different forms of inspiration, blah blah.
Well some of these ideas definitely felt like I would be leaving my husband for a newer younger model (I am not married, just used this for a story telling purposes).
But it fiknally hit me this weekend. That part where writers don’t want to delete something because they’re attached to it. Our writing is our baby.
Well for the most part, I felt my work was below average, so I didn’t mind deleting stuff. But when it came to deleting some characters… I held on a little tighter.
I mean, honestly, how do you REALLY know if those characters are needed ? Other than the main characters. Don’t get me wrong, there are some instances that are clear, but it’s those grey area characters that I am talking about.
In my case, i feel like my storyline would work better with those “grey” characters. They just so happened to be the ones I don’t want to get rid of .
I still have no idea where the ending of my book is headed, but at least I got the first third of it figured out 😎
