I have been thinking so much lately about writing my first book…, but I keep not writing it.
I ponder and giggle and sigh over various ideas I would like to include, but I never sit down and start putting any of them together.
And it suddenly hit me just now clearly what my main struggle is with writing this book:
I’ve got all the details – they come to me all too easily, and almost all the time – my struggle is that I don’t have the big picture, the main story and plot.
And it practically paralyzes me, leaving me to do no work on it at all, and instead worry more and more about all the time that is passing without my writing this first book.
So, I guess I need to start working specifically on ideas for a main plot tomorrow… I will take out my writer’s book, start reading it, and then start a list of at least ten ideas for general plots for a book.
They don’t have to be good or likely at all – they just have to be.
I can do this. 😉
