…unlike my writing lately. I’m supposed to be working on book three of my Pleasure Code series but I’m having a hard time with this one for some reason. I know who the hero is (he showed up in book two) and I’ve fleshed out who the heroine is (I’m one of those weird plotter types) but when I sit down at the keyboard…yeah, not so much. I just can’t see the scene.
I’ve never run into this problem.
Well, I guess that’s not entirely true. Back in the day when I first started writing, this problem would sometimes hit and I’d just shove the story aside and work on whatever was new and shiny and waiting in the wings. Nine times outta ten I would never go back and finish whatever story I initially got stuck on. I have a folder in my Dropbox full of started but not finished stories.
The problem is that this time, I can’t do that. This is the third in what will be at least a four book series. I have to finish it. Heck, I have to start it!
I think part of the problem is that I unintentionally started a new and different series with my last submission. Right now all I can think about is that other series when what I need to be doing is writing on my Pleasure Code story.
Anyone out there have some advice (and maybe some alcohol) for a frustrated author? Meanwhile, I’ll be over here…staring at a blank page…
