A quick update: I don’t want to come across as some drama queen throwing my teddy out on a bad day. I was/am pretty stuck and threw out Tuesday’s post to just write something – it didn’t even have a title (I might give it one – there’s a rude joke in there somewhere – suggestions?). I’ve had all day and two nights to think on it and get to the crux of the issue – that I’ve been sliding into this place since I tried to write the ‘bad man’.
I need something – a kick up the bum or inspiration?
The problem (another one) is I’m half way through the first book and I’ve not told enough of the story. There is so much more to say but is there enough action to keep the narrative engaging? I’m stuck because the story feels bigger than me. It feels like I’m picking away at a chocolate mountain with a teaspoon in the cold. Does that make sense? I want it, I love it, but I’m missing something.
I have chapter outlines for this book and synopsis for the next two so I should be able to just write and write and write.

I was at my Writing Group last night. Great session. I got the feedback I needed from the group (an awesome group btw) and I think I have a plan. I have one hour until school pick up so I’m going to write for one hour. (A: I needed a kick.)
P.S. I have shoes.
No image today – I’m writing!
