Patricia Wrede offers awesome advice and insight into a writer's life.
My novella has been driving me nuts because I keep writing away and then having to abandon the pages because something undefined and undefinable is wrong.
Now I know the demon baiting me is not evil. It's my backbrain whimpering at my plot issues. If I tough it out, slog through, REWRITE, the story will be stronger, better than I originally saw it.
It's true. I can feel the novella growing in emotional intensity. It's challenging me to dare just a little more.
