|09:55 pm - Argh, writer's block|
Seriously, you guys, I haven't found it this hard to break a story since... wow, a very long time.
It's my White Collar spec. It's kicking my butt. I spent an hour last night working on the plot, trying to fix some really stupid holes in it, and what I came up with wasn't much better. I wanted to finish working on this tonight, maybe write a few pages. I couldn't do either--and it's not just procrastination (although I am ending up doing that, too), but I look at what I have and I just can't figure out where to make it go.
*whimpers* I hate this. I even have some good ideas (conceived only lately, after my writer's group shot down my original character arc for Neal and my first two attempts at the main plot line), but... I can't make them fit. *kicks story*
Suggestions anyone? I think I'm going to try sleep, tonight.
Current Mood: frustrated
Need a beta reader?
I love WC and I convinced my son to get his hair cut like Neal. Does that give me extra pull?
Huh, I though I replied to this comment already! :)
Neal does have a flattering haircut. I'm not sure I'm ready for a beta reader, though--how are you with solving plot holes?
Totally willing to talk about plot holes.
I don't know what your story's about, per se, but I love White Collar. If you want to tell me more, I'd be glad to lend a hand.
Ooo, I might do that. Give me a bit to see if I can pull the threads of what I have together, enough for you to have a look at.
