Days Like This...

You find yourself in the middle of writing something that you truly love, know that it'll be a while before you can actually show it, know that your readers are second-guessing your current plotting when it should be a clue that you're up to something, there are issues with future polishing and the fact that it's not as fun as it was, and you wonder if you just shouldn't shut the whole shooting match down because no one actually cares about this 'verse anymore other than you.

Selfish thoughts? Maybe. Doesn't make them any less real. It's the worst thing in the world to have to sit on something you're really proud of until the rest of the story is told, even if you're working your ass off to get there. And once you get there, you know some people will likely roll their eyes.


Another one of those days when the author can't help but second-, third-, and fourth-guess herself.

ETA: saavikam77, thank you and I love you. I needed that so bad you don't even know.
