For the past few day’s I’ve been trying to restart one of my old stories (that will be so great once I’ve finished it), but I just can’t seem to wrap my head around it. I’ve started it about three or four times, but now that I’m older and have decided to add about three sequels I’m trying to fit everything in properly.
I can’t seem to get the first chapter right. I can’t get the voice right. I can’t decide which POV will be the best.
It’s driving me crazy!
I’ve had this story floating around in my head since 2010 and I should have had it figured out by now!
What is it with first chapters?
I’ve tried doing a chapter plan, but I just have too many failed starts word docs in my folder about this story. So much background information floating around getting in the way. Plus missing bits and pieces from my mind that I thought I had, but don’t.
I tried to print out the paper so I’d have something physical to go through, but the printer has decided to fail on me 😦
The entire sutuation makes me wanna cry 😦
