I’m in the midst of rewriting a YA contemporary fantasy, and my inner editor is sabotaging the flow. I’ve got a rough outline to guide me through the structure of the story I’ve in mind, I have a Beginning, at least one major Turning Point and an End, so a few of the big building blocks are there. But still I’m creatively stuck. I’ve read/rewritten/read/rewritten some chapters so many times, that I’m bored with my own writing. Cue insecurity.
I should abandon this project.
I am never going to finish.
If I finish it is going to be Boring (yes capital B) and no one is going to read it.
Maybe this is the point where I should try to find some Beta readers. Cue insecurity.
I won’t find any.
I can’t possibly let anyone read this boring story.
If someone reads this, you are never going to finish.
Guess this writing thing means: continue writing. Even when your brain is in the way/ you are bored/ you feel insecure/ you want to abandon the Thing.
