Is anyone reading this? I'm just feeling rather BLEH about it right now, and I'm wondering if I should take a break to work out some more plot, then just write it when I have time, and not post it on the internet. Having a set schedule does help me crank out the words, but I feel like the plot and characterization suffers somewhat because I'm usually "in a rush" to write the post for the day. I don't and can't take the time to think things through, to plan far enough ahead to insert things that need time to develop, to look forward and steer things in one direction or another. And when/if I do think of such things, everything's already been posted and it's too late to add them in further back in the story.
I do like the story and the characters. I do want to finish it and, at the moment, I do want to edit it and send it out eventually. I think it could make a fun book, and I think people might like it. I just... I don't know. I'm not feeling motivated to make myself write 1,000-2,000 words per day, four days a week, if no one even cares when/if it goes up on the internet to read. Maybe I'll just wait to show it off until it's in novel form a couple years from now. ;)
Sorry to be such a downer. I don't want it to seem like I'm begging for comments or feedback. I really, really appreciate those who've commented or emailed me. Really. And I suppose not that many people know about this in the first place, so I shouldn't expect much. I'm just not in the most bestest of moods, and not loving the story right now. Can anyone offer any help? Ideas? Anything...?
