I won't say I am suffering writer's block, exactly, but I'm stuck and have been having a devil of a time getting past this sticky point to the parts that are, uh, more interesting.
Now, standard writing advice is that if there is a part of your story that's boring you, it will almost certainly bore your readers, so you should cut it. But I really need this transitional chapter, so I am trying to figure out how to cut the part that's aggravating me while keeping the important stuff.
Another piece of writing advice is that if you're stuck on one part, write a different chapter. You don't have to write everything in order. But I've always written in a linear fashion, and I can't seem to make myself break that pattern.
So, yeah, not a lot of progress in the past couple of weeks. :/ But I mean to plug away some more this weekend!
