Day fifty-seven of my 365 Day Writing Project.
When I sat down to write tonight I was experiencing an inner battle of sorts. I needed to decide whether to keep writing the current story line or develop more of the back story. I chose to develop more of the back story because I was feeling the need for some change. I absolutely despise when it happens, but I must admit that there are times when even I don’t enjoy the story. Those are the moments when change is good. Change is necessary.
Change, I did. I allowed my writing to go on a little detour and it was great. I didn’t have to struggle with the part I had been writing up to today. I focused on the back story and enjoyed the departure from the main story. I will have more to write in the “detour” tomorrow and I am already looking forward to it. My hope is that when it is time to return to the main story line, I will be recharged and able to enjoy it again.
