Why is it so hard to finish one project?
At some point during the creative process of writing a book you’re going to get bogged down. I’m at that point. I’m in the final 10,000 words or so but my mind is already thinking of the next idea.
Do I spend countless hours editing and pruning my first draft to make it at least semi-enjoyable, or do I move onto the next project and hope I’ve learned a lot from my first big WIP (work in progress)?
I’ve recently been really curious about a new idea, a sort of Stephen King/Stranger Things story about young boy in a small town. Of course, this town isn’t your average small town.
I’m excited about this idea and I still have a TON to flesh out. Right now I mostly just have a premise, but I’m excited to see where it goes.
Next I have to decide if this story fits best in book format or as a movie script/television script. Hopefully this becomes more clear as the plot lines and characters develop.
Anyone have any advice if I decide to go ahead and write a script? Any books to read?
