My story has been under siege for years with bad decisions and their corrections. I've found that when I go back to the earlier parts of the book, I can expand, revise, create entire new paths with no problem, but now where I'm at, I'm stuck, forced to second guess myself as I go through all the possibilities in my head.
Many of my fellow writers have told me that I over think my projects, spending too much worrying about each stroke and decision. Unfortunately, that's what has made my writing so strong, in their words. It works for me when I finally start writing. Sometimes I get a chapter perfect in the first run, most of the time though it takes a lot of refining, but when I'm done, it couldn't be done any other way.
Basically, I've gotten myself in a hole.
My only action plan, as it stands right now, is that if I can't get back into writing this novel in the next two weeks, I'm going to shelve it for a time and work on my next book. Maybe after that, I'll have sorted through my difficulties and will be able to finally finish this damnable novel.
