Slow to start, fast to finish?
The last few weeks have been very vexing for me as an author. I started a new book and this time, I chose to do it in a genre that’s totally new to me–fantasy. At first it was meant to be straight up hard fantasy but I soon found I couldn’t leave romantic elements behind or implied so I had to to a little rearranging of the first 3 chapters.
Now, I’m midway through the fifth chapter and still feeling my way through. My word count has been severally low from where it usually is and I haven’t decided if I’m okay with that or not. At least I’m writing something each day.
However, I believe in this book so I’m anxious to see where it will go. I just wish it would go a little faster.
Does this happen to any of you? You have a book semi-outlined out, know where you want to go for a few chapters but yet the words won’t come? How do you combat it?
