Hard DaysPosted: February 27, 2012
Not that life is hard, or things aren’t going well in my day to day life, it’s just that some days the story comes more easily than others. Some days the words flow more readily, and others every word, every phrase is a battle. I’ve had several of the latter in a row and it’s a little discouraging. I know where my story is going, I know what needs to happen, it’s just this particular scene isn’t going well. I’m going to give the process a little more time before I move on to another scene to come back to this one.
I feel like this scene is important to the story, but I’m also afraid that since it’s so difficult to write it may end up being something I cut in the long run. Still, I know I need to write out the scene, even if it has to be cut later, because for the story it has to be written, even if I know I will cut it later because this scene will be used in the long run to work out some of the details in the plot.
So, I’ll work on this scene for a while longer, and if things don’t open up I’ll move on, and continue the story, then come back to the scene later on. It will work out, I know it will, in the mean time it makes for some hard days.
