Chapter 3 finished after a century of sitting on my butt and ignoring it. Chapter 4 over halfway done.
Why did it take so long to get a little done some days but not other days? Some days there was more to change. Friday had a lot to change and a lot to think about. I kept making progress, going back and changing, resuming, going back, resuming, etc. It was slow-going and very involved.
I even had to call my dad up once to ask his opinion because I couldn’t decide on the best way for writing the thought. Sometimes his ideas are so vague like, “Sounds good. I like it.” But other times he has such marvelous insight. This was one of those times. I asked him why he chose the sentence he did and his reasoning was so intelligent and literary that it made me feel like I don’t put enough thought into how I create sentences.
But if I analyzed every sentence for what hidden depths and meaning it might reveal to the reader, I don’t think I’d have any fun writing at all and then what would be the point?
Who do you turn to when you can’t decide on the best sentence/scenario/etc to choose?
