Yesterday I got stuck.
It’s the outline. It’s the following the outline, it trying to remain rigid with the outline and the whole thing makes me want to toss all of the 18,000 words I’ve written.
But I won’t.
I’m past doing those kinds of things.
I don’t act out in anger I think about what’s wrong and try to rectify it.
But I’m kind of to the point I wonder whether I did something wrong at some point.
I love the story and I’m trying to wrap my head around what’s gone wrong.
The truth is, I know what it is. I understand why it’s happening but it frustrates the hell out of me anyway.
I know the outline is messing with my head. I know it’s making me write things that aren’t where I want the story to go, but I continue with it because I promised myself I would use an outline.
I think those days are passed.
I’ll use it as a base but will write whatever the hell I want.
Thanks for coming to my therapy session.
