Day 24 – When the story gets stuck

Day twenty-four of My 365 Day Writing Project.

Time: 50 minutes

Words: 1,0000

I had meant to write a lot more than 1,000 words today. I zipped through the first 30 minutes but then hit a point in my story when things came to a halt. It was unexpected. It was a lot of start-stop, start-stopping. I just couldn’t get there. My story has been taking some wild turns and I have been riding along with them without hesitation.

For some reason tonight, I stalled and was not sure where to go with things. I felt like I had the flow going just fine, but I was really lacking in my imagination and telling of the story. After about fifteen minutes of “where to¬†go,” “what to do?,” I decided it was best to start fresh tomorrow with new perspective and hopefully, new energy in¬†storytelling.
