I broke my own rule and read over some of what I had written. This turned out to be a really bad idea, because before I knew it, I was thinking “this is garbage,” and totally rewriting my most recent three chapters. This wouldn’t be so bad if I had only corrected spelling and grammar and left it at that, but I took the story in an entirely different direction than I had planned, and now I’m left wondering which direction I should continue. Either way, it’s going to make a whole lot of extra work for me. Why didn’t I just resist the urge to peep?
Anyway, the last couple of days have been very slow in the writing department because of my breakdown, and my creativity doesn’t seem willing to allow me to write anything more in this story until I’ve chosen which path I’m going down. After all, it would be pointless to finish both, wouldn’t it?
