It’d been four days now. I’m at a place in my wip where there is a turning point scene. I’m afraid it has come too soon in the story, but when I go back to write something else to precede it, it falls flat. It’s like my heart knows the scene should be there but my reasoning is trying to second guess it all. It’s too soon, you need more build up, the character arc hasn’t come far enough for this scene. Grrr.
But, hey? You know what? Epiphany moment here!!!! Screw those questions. My gut is telling me right now at this exact moment as I am writing this to tell my reasoning to fuck off and leave it the hell alone. My gut knows this scene is exactly where it needs to be when it needs to be. I can build so much more off of this! The characterization will more than be built, because for this scene it will be defined!!! Yippy skippy!!!!!
God, I love to blog!
Thanks everyone. 🙂
Okay, now for future reference, what is your process for overcoming the scene stumper?
