This week, each day seems indistinguishable from the next. Sleepless nights spent reading book after book in a restless pursuit to defy desperation and forego losing my mind while staring at the ceiling. I endure groggy days slogging through the 9 to 5 madness and wrack my befuddled mind during my scheduled writing time for insightful words and fascinating topics. Then there is the quagmire of my plotting project.
Yesterday I stumbled upon a potential twist that might solve my problems and patch together the storyline. The issue is, it feels like a patch. It doesn’t feel integrated, a cohesive and plausible event that is integral to the overall story. The events do not flow seamlessly from one scene to the next. For me, it is the kiss of death for this potential solution. I decided the next step in my “fix-the-issue” strategy is to write out a detailed timeline. Maybe that will shake something loose and deliver me from my plotting nightmare.
I always remember my number one writing priority. My core habits are strong, and writing a little every day is my secret weapon. Yesterday I wrote 241 countable words.
Did you write yesterday?
Keep on writing.
