In case you were wondering, what the above list is referring to, I'm
writing struggling wringing bleeding (oh yes--THAT will do) the rough draft of my work in progress. And while I really like this story, in the particular chapter I'm slogging my way through now, well, I know what has to happen, and what needs to be conveyed, but unfortunately for me, it's one of those tricky bits where I need to bring the reader into the story while simultaneously show the passage of time... Going into details at this point might slow the pace, but I might end up having to try it... urgh!
In short, I just don't know what to say--RIGHT NOW. But in order to move on, something has to go there. I've never liked the initial write. Revising--that's different. I know I can fix it later, but there has to BE something to fix. So out it comes, and later, after I've gagged at it, I'll give a go at turning it into something good. Ahhhhhh... the process. What's yours?
