I feel like I’m experiencing the Week Two Blahs that are most common in NaNoWriMo. You see, I’m crazy and started writing a story halfway through November to reach my higher-than-average word goal. I met the goal, but the story was pretty much just getting started.
It got to a depressing point, and I set it to the side. When I get too frustrated with editing, I went back to writing this story. It’s given me focus when I need something to do.
Last time, I wrote about the stuff that will happen in the story. I’ve done some of that, and I’m at a lull before things move forward. I can’t decide if I’m stalling because I’m writing from the wrong perspective, I need to stop the story, or if I just don’t want to move forward. It’s a weird feeling.
I’m also uncertain if this will turn into a mammoth book that will only end up being research, though the story technically ended (well, I thought it did). Guess I won’t know until I finish.
Maybe that’s why I’m stalling. I have no idea how this ends. The story line has a clear ending, but I’m pretty sure the book doesn’t end there, if that makes any sense.
Guess there’s only one way to find out. That’s right – I must keep on writing.
