Insecure Writers Support Group is finally here. Thank God. I missed last month's because I was on too much of a high coming off of A-Z Challenge and then I spaced it.
For this month's IWSG, I thought I'd reveal my latest insecurity with my writing. This June I'm participating in JunoWriMon, where authors strive to commit to at least 1700 words a day. My goal is to finish a project that's been haunting me for at least two years. So far I'm happy to report I've made significant progress meeting those goals. And believe me...that's not an easy task by any measure, especially since summer break is here for my family.
Anyway, that's the good part. Here's the bad. With that same project, I'm having some plotting issues. When I started this project, I had a precise vision of where I wanted to take it. Now, I'm knee deep in it and am pondering whether or not I should change the direction of it. I'm doing my best to merge the initial premise with the new ideas, but am getting incredibly frustrated in the process. Some say its a death wish to change things like this in mid-novel. I'm not sure.
What do you think? Have you ever had this happen to you? Any suggestions?
