i've written myself into a corner. okay, not literally, but figuratively. i'm working on a sequel to Second Kiss. i've been writing it and rewriting it for months now. i was so excited about where it was going. i was loving the developement, loving what my main character got to experience.
and then it happened.
i got stuck.
all of my plots and subplots have seemed to come to a standstill. its like i know where they're supposed to end up and that place is wonderful and moving and powerful. but i don't know how to get there. and the point that i'm at now is okay, but its not great. and i'm afraid i've made one of my main characters (one of the best characters) an extra... or even worse, a member of the stage crew. he's barely in it. he's barely part of the show. and that scares me because he's what i loved best about the show. so i'm trying to pull him back in but the story isn't letting me. i'm trying to get to the resolution but the words aren't taking me there. i can't tell you how many times i've stared at the words on the screen and waited for them to unfold before me. but they aren't and i'm discouraged.
it wouldn't be that big of a deal if i could just close my laptop for a while and think about something else. but i can't. my brain won't stop. i think about it anywhere and anytime i have even a second to think about anything. how will i get there? how will i make it work? what is their story going to be?
but nothing is coming. so for now i'm just... stuck.
