This is, what, the third week in a row? I’m really beginning to think it’s an issue with the story. I have the time, I want to write, but I just am not in love with this story. I’ve lost the spark.
It was so much better as its short story version. Now that I’ve tried to adapt it and expand it to be novel-length, it’s not so interesting to me.
I know one problem is that there’s too little narrative content and too little narrative time to sustain a book. So I think I’m going to shelve the project and move on. There are other story ideas in the queue waiting to be developed and written. The characters are being very patient, but I definitely think it’s time to let them have some time in the spotlight.
How are your WiPs going?
