I think the reason I'm having trouble writing is because I'm forcing it. There's. . . something in the story that's not working. I don't know what it is yet and am trying to figure it out. This is maddening for me! I don't really want to change anything but I think I'll have to if I want the story to work.
This has to be one of the hardest parts of writing a book. Knowing that something is wrong, trying to figure out what it is, and then changing it. Especially when you are attached to what has to be changed, it feels like your killing something. Or maybe just wiping it out of existence to haunt your dreams. I don't know but I hope it won't end up like that. I feel like that hope is futile though.
So when you feel something is wrong with your book, and for the life of you don't know what, how do you figure it out?
