The Road Backwards

Do you know I've gone from 25k to 21k to 3k? Uhh, yes... it's seems a little like regression, don't you think? But it's a small bump, right?

Each time I re-read what I have, the more I don't like it. I know exactly what I want to say, how the story should be going, what will happen at the end--but it's all in my head. I can't seem to get it down onto the page the same way it is in my brain. It's just not flowing correctly. And it's frustrating the heck out of me!

So now, I've decided to try another tactic. I'm doing an outline. I hope I can still salvage some of the work I had before--it would be such a waste otherwise. Almost 60 pages down the drain. Aye.

Alright, I'm going to see how much writing I can get done today, I shall keep you posted.

Have any of you ever experienced this problem? How did you deal with it?

Adios for now.
