Imagine with me...
You are listening to a lovely piano concerto. You lean back in the comfy chair, close your eyes and relax into the smooth flow of music.
then the pianist hits the wrong key.
That's what happened to me this past week with my WIP. I was going along all fine and dandy but then something wasn't right.
It began as a nagging whisper at the back of my mind...
not right...not right...not right...
Of course, I ignored it. I was following my plot line...I was building scenes....what could be wrong?
not right... the voice grew louder.... could be better it whispered.
So I stopped writing.
It is a lousy feeling, but I'm glad that my inner voice is telling me to reassess and redirect my work.
I'm not sure exactly what is not working...or how I'm going to fix it...but I will listen to that inner voice and find the answers.
It means more work, more time, more ripping my hair out...
but I'll do what it takes.
*sigh* writing a novel is blasted hard work!
