I’ve been trying to write a new story for an anthology for months now. In fact, I’ve tried three stories–bouncing back and forth between ideas without really settling in to any one of them. Well, that’s not really true. I tried to make two half-written stories fit the theme I was looking for, ditched both of those ideas, thought about a new idea but didn’t start it, got a fourth idea and wrote a few pages before getting stuck…and now I’m back to the other idea.
This time, I think it’s going to stick. I’m still not sure exactly where the story is going–or rather, I know where it’s going, but not precisely how it’s going to get there. However, I’m over 2k into it now in just a couple of writing sessions, so I feel hopeful that this will be the one.
