I thought that coming up with the perfect title for my story would be the answer to all of my problems. In some ways, it was. In other ways, it created new ones. At Teen Book Con, at least one person asked each panel how they deal with the dreaded writer's block. Everyone of course had their own way to deal, but it was what I believe Rachel Hawkins said that stuck with me the most. If you're stuck, it usually means the foundation is broken. I have come to this realization in my own WIP.
With that said, my previously untitled project is now being filed away under "nice try". My new titled project is getting a fresh start, with some remnants finding their way in from the old project. New characters, new conflicts, but same underlying theme. Hopefully it works this time! If not, I guess I need to re-think what I am writing about.
Is it too early in my "career" to be going through this? Is it better that it's happening now and not later? What are your thoughts on this? How many times have you written a few chapters and then just scrapped them all and started over?
Happy Wednesday, folks! We are halfway there!
