I am at 56 percent with my rewrite. Which is good, I guess. I mean, it's better than not being 56 percent done, right? I have great characters. I have a good narrator/true voice in Seth. Every scene on its own has some degree of enjoyable goodness. People say this to me. And I believe it to be true when I read it for myself.
And yet... I'm freaking out. I keep finding myself analyzing the plot and the journey. I just don't see how this is going to work. It's like, my scenes are arranged in the way they are because things have to happen in a certain order. But the order of things doesn't seem to have the best flow as far as I can tell. I don't know. I just don't KNOW!
I'm having one of those urges to just (metaphorically) walk away. But I just can't do that. I've spent a year of my life working on this story, with these characters. They deserve a good ending. I deserve a good ending.
I'll be heading to Vegas for my 30th birthday this week. I hope when I come back things will be working smoother. I hope I'll be able to get this done.
