I know I wrote in my last post that I was at a critical point in my story. I also said the next time you hear from me I’d be finished, but I’m not. I’ve hit an unexpected snag in my story that I can’t seem to get past.
I’m nearing the end and I have all of the details already written out. The problem I’m having is with the dialogue in this crucial scene I’m on. I know how I want it to play out, I just can’t seem to get the words onto the page the way I want it. Again, I probably shouldn’t be over-analyzing this, but I can’t help it. It’s such a crucial point that I don’t want to get it completely wrong the first time. I even went over the scene in my head while I was cutting grass this weekend, of all things. However, when I sat down to write just a little while ago I couldn’t get the words out on the page.
I can’t go into detail about the specifics of where I’m stuck as it reveals too much about the story. I’m going to sleep on it again and hopefully tomorrow I can finally get past it. I guess all writers go through this, I just didn’t expect it after I had mapped out the entire story in detail. Fun times!
