You must stay drunk on writing so reality cannot destroy you. ~Ray Bradbury~

Falling Behind

It's week two and I am about 2000 words behind where I need to be to stay caught up. It's frustrating when life gets in the way so much. My story has taken on a life of its own, going places I never expected it to. My characters are becoming completely different people than I originally imagined them to be. Both those things makes the story a lot harder to write. It's not flowing like I need it to. And on top life distractions, I have a head full of other story ideas and characters screaming in my brain to have my attention. I have a very full head, which makes for a very difficult time writing.

But I will make it through this. I will finish.

I will.

  1. Yes you will finish. Persevere, carry on writing, and that 19% progress meter will turn into 100% at end of November.

    Good luck. I know how annoying it is when other story ideas try to take over time from current story, but sometimes you just have to write down excellent ideas for future reference and then ignore them.
