Write It Wrong
That is my mantra this week. I am coming into the final third of this draft of my book and, although the ending is pretty much written, there are scenes between here and there that don't exist at all. I have tried to plan them out in advance but I know there is going to be a certain amount of trial and error involved here. In some cases I'm going to have to try a few different alternatives before I know exactly how a plot point should go. So my goal is to just get words out without judging them too harshly or over-thinking to the point of paralysis. I am giving myself permission to "write it wrong" and hoping that in the end that helps me get it right.
