The first step of anything is admitting you have a problem.
Or a goal.
I have both.
I've got approximately 4 chapters left to write for Comedy of Rain, but I can't seem to write them. I can bullet point them just fine, but when it comes to expressing things in actual sentences, I draw a blank.
And I know what the cause of said problem is: this chapter I've been stuck on is Hipólito's POV, and he's very angry. So angry, in fact, that getting him to articulate words is nigh impossible. So I'm trying an alternate method. I've taken my bullet point, and I'm adding subpoints, with the hope that I can compile enough to make sentences to make paragraphs, and soldier on enough to make it through the draft and finally close it out.
Because then once it's closed out, I'll have the entire picture in front of me, and I can edit. And edit means I have more free rein to fix the characters' POVs where needed.
I hope your strategy works. I'm looking forward to reading this one.ReplyDelete
