Question: When the going gets tough writing the story, how do you keep yourself writing to the end? If you have not started writing yet, why do you think that is, and what do you think could help you find your groove to start?
I'm halfway through a story that I put on hold because I'm uncertain of where it's going. When I'm stumped, I go back to the beginning and reread it. I'm always changing things. Hopefully for the better. If I totally dislike the premise, the plot, I might go so far as to shelve it. Though, this story I like, and it's been waiting for me. With that said, I like to walk and think about where my characters are leading me. I wish I could outline, but it's rare when I can think that far ahead.
This is normally how you'll find me when I'm writing....
