When the Excitement Leaves

(if I had a lot of friends who are writers)

There was some progress this week regarding one of my stories on Wattpad. This particular story has been in and out of my head for a while now. While it is published on Wattpad, its taken me a long time to upload new chapters. It’s not like the story has stop being interesting but sometimes I’m not sure how to procede forward.

Perhaps this is poor planning on my part. However, there are times where I plan stories out detail by detail and all the excitement just leaves me. It was as if writing a detail outline had somehow substituted the need of writing it out on paper. 

It sort of sounds like an excuse but that’s the only way I can explain it. It’s probably the reason why I have multiple side stories I jump to on occassion. It’s one way for me to keep the excitement of the main story that I’m working on. Sometimes I don’t always write other stories. I turn on my console and start binge playing a game or sometimes I just binged on a T.V. show. It depends on my mood. 

The most important thing for me ia that at least I don’t abandon a story midway. Sure it takes a long time but I finish it. With this particular Wattpad story and even with all my other stories, I hope to one day finish them. It’s part of my yeay goals dor myself.

  1. I find myself having a similar problem when writing. I have key parts of the plot planned out but when it finally comes down to writing the scenes, I find it hard to continue the narrative. I wish you luck as you continue to work on your writing!
