Writing Update #6

As I feared, this week was not as good as last week. I wrote about 5 and a half pages (which is one scene) so that means that chapter 10 is now almost 17 pages long. The good thing was, the scene was fun to write. But the bad thing was that I had to rewrite it so often because I was never satisfied with the result ._. I'm still not super-satisfied with the final outcome but I won't change it again, at least not now. Do you experience writing problems like that as well? Scenes that you're just never 100% happy with? :'D

Besides, I had a really big thing on my mind this week so I couldn't concentrate on my story as much... But hopefully (fingers crossed) this "big thing" will have its happy ending tomorrow so I can concentrate more on my writing again.

Now before I make up any more excuses - thanks for reading! x'D

Hoping for a happy ending for your Big Thing!

If find I'm not happy with a scene, I leave it alone for a while and then go back and tweak it. Or if I can't put my finger on what is wrong with it, I run it by a beta.

I wouldn't say Ive had much experience with scenes I'm 'never' 100 percent happy with, I always regard any unhappiness I have with a scene as being temporary and fixable, even if I don't know right then what the fix is. When I fix it and it feels right, then I'm happy!

Thank you! And yes, it had a happy ending - I finally have my driver's license! Yay! *_*

Yeah I think I'll turn back to that scene in a week or so, maybe then I'll be able to improve it. Or maybe I notice that it's not as bad as I thought (that happens to me from time to time, too).

Let's see how much I'll write this week, now that I don't have to worry about getting my driver's license anymore (I still can't believe it - I mean, now I'm suddenly allowed to drive cars! Ohmygawd! *freaks out* )
