I woke up this morning wondering when my story became my nemesis? I'm beginning to think that the connection between a writer and his/her story is more like a relationship than anything.
At the beginning, everything is rosy and sweet. You both think the world of each other and together there is nothing you can't do.
A few weeks pass and the writer might start thinking the story isn't all that great after all and the story might start thinking they should have held out for a better writer. But you both keep quiet, because you still hold out hope.
After a few more weeks/months the writer wants to kill off the MC, let the antagonist win and run off with his/her leading love interest. The story is trying to figure out which circuit inside the computer it would need to tweak to send an electric shock through the keyboard.
This is where I am today.
*sigh* I kind of want to wring my story's neck.
Story, please look better to me tomorrow.
P.S. If you want to win a book in which the story at least attempted to behave itself, check out my giveaway. I'll still be accepting entries until this Friday night. ;)
