Welcome one and all to another meeting of the Insecure Writer's Support Group - where neurosis and indecision; procrastination and fumbling are celebrated! After all we are human beings, though we often mistake ourselves for human doings. If you wish to belong to this group of hardy self-flagellates hit the link button above and sign up. You'll be glad you did!
If you are new here - I usually post on the first Wednesday of every month so as to keep my status as an insecure writer. I'm also on Sojourner in Nova Scotia where I post weekly. I do love my writing peeps though - even if I quit writing for good (which as a fully operative neurotic I often feel like doing) I will keep coming back here to see how others are doing.
Here is this month's optional question: If you could use a wish to help you write just ONE scene/chapter of your book, which one would it be? (examples: fight scene / first kiss scene / death scene / chase scene / first chapter / middle chapter / end chapter, etc.)
Right now the answer to that is so easy - please please please help me with the end of my WIP. It is a mystery and I know who done it and why but I can't make it work out on the page. I have End block. I have no problem with any other part of it. I mean it needs further drafts but I'm not doing those until I figure out the right (write) ending. I've run up to it, I've crept up on it, I've circled it, I've turned my back on it - but nada. No budging will it do. It remains hidden from my mind. So I paint trees instead.
As to the title of this post - well, it just came to me. I love it. I may write a new novel with that as the title. That'll show Crooked Knife who is boss!
On other writing related news I've been sending out a shite-load of poems to literary journals and chap-book publishers. Nothing moving yet but at least I'm back in the game.
How about you all - where do you get stuck and desire a little magic assistance?
And I'm including a tree painting for those of you who care...
