I’ve been saying that I was going add another post to my blog just as soon as I finished up the current chapter of my WIP. Well, I have finished the chapter – three times, to be exact.
Sufficed to say, I’m stuck.
Maybe I jinxed myself. Just a few weeks ago, I was almost bragging about how well the manuscript was going. And now, I can’t even figure out if my characters are happy or angry with each other. I know I should just move on to the next chapter, but Chapter 9 is a very important chapter, and any slight changes here have much larger repercussions for the end of the novel.
But as frustrated as I may sound, I’m not really worried. The process of writing a novel is long and cruel and unforgiving, but eventually I will force my way through the chapter well enough so that I can complete the novel.
Writing a novel isn’t supposed to be easy. If it was, everyone would do it.
