No Caves today. I just can’t do this man, it’s hard.
Plot building is hard. Even more so when the existing foundation was somewhat hastily thought up and has all these little loose ends you intended on tying together somewhere, but you’re losing sight of where the red line’s going. In fact, I’m willing to go as far as saying I’ve never really had an idea for the red lining. I have a few places in mind where I don’t want it to go, but other than that, I may have worked myself into a bit of a dead end.
And that sucks, because I really like what I have going so far. I believe this is the furthest (farthest?) I’ve ever come as far as story writing is concerned, and it’s definitely in the top something list of “most completed projects”. I want to see this through. Not necessarily editing it and getting it published one way or another, but at least getting the story finished, being able to say “yeah I wrote a thing and people think it’s okay”.
I genuinely hope I can kick this that far. If not, I’ll be mildly disappointed in myself and mourn the time I spent on a failure for days. Sure, a good learning experience and very nice practice, but it’s become on of my babies by now. And nobody likes seeing babies die.
Let’s leave it at that shitty analogy for today. Hope to be back with a new Caves very soon, but no promises.
