I sat down at the laundromat today, opened my laptop, intended to work on my new book, and wound up spending an hour changing the font on my blog.
I wrote out an outline for this piece while I was at residency and I’m roughly halfway through the outline and I only have about 14k words. Obviously there is plenty of room to unpack this story more.
I’m wondering though, if I should unpack from what I have or if I should be adding to the story overall. Maybe I flew to this point in the the story because it’s not really the climax but just a climax in Act I.
I like the flow and pacing of this first part–but I’m also incredibly biased about it.
Ugh! Why is writing so hard!?
