Creativity Woes (Or, Why there’s not been a new chapter yet.)

*Growls quietly to himself*

Why is it that I can see more and more chapters, EXCEPT the next one?  I know where I’m going.  I know how things are going to be.  Hell, I could probably finish writing the book OUTSIDE of the next chapter! 

Here’s the honest-to-goodness problem: I can make both of my ideas work nicely with the story, so I dunno which one to use! 

I’ve received one complaint that I wanted to address, outside of grammar, and that’s not having enough character development early.  We’re 5 chapters in, and we know very little about the main character.  So, I decided to beef up his story just a wee-little bit.  Well, there’s two ways I could do it, but I dunno which I really wanna do!

I’d put it to a vote out here, but I dunno if I’d actually get any responses, which puts me right back to where I am now. 

*Growls some more*  Where’s my damn quarter…

I refuse to let this kill the story.  I WILL HAVE THIS STORY DONE!  I give myself until Dec. to have the completed works!  Sure, seems like a long time, but that gives me a set timeline to say, okay, time to hammer this out!

  1. If both ideas work why not just skip the enxt chapter and write the rest and fill it in later? You may then need to tweak a few of the other chapters to fit the new insert but it should more or less work and at least you would be moving forward.

      I was going to do just that, but two hours later, I wound up with the motivation and the completed ideas for the chapter. Now it’s just time to keep going, right?
