After going to the
We spend so much time in our heads, crafting our plots, developing our characters that when they pop out onto paper we are used to them…tired of writing their story…unimpressed with what they are accomplishing.
I know I do it. I get 3/4ths of the way through a novel and suddenly lose interest in the people I am writing about. This usually coincides with the point in the book where I am having trouble figuring out what to do or where to go in my plot. I think this is NOT a coincidence.
Still, it makes me wonder…if we could keep some of that initial ‘squee’ (for lack of a better word) about our writing if it wouldn’t help us over the hump and on to completion.
How do you keep your ‘squee’?
