I decided to have a little fun and include it in a list of 10 ways to know your WIP is in trouble. :) Enjoy!
1 - You wake up to a crucial note that reads as follows: IMPORTANT! Add suspense with tooth floss! (Yes, that's exactly what my note said this morning. No, I don't have a clue.)
2 - You keep getting your protagonist and antagonist mixed up
3 - Your love interest decides to run off with your villain because your hero is boring.
4 - You realize your MC and side kick have had the same conversation about five times.
5 - An entire section of your book is written from the POV of a character you could drop and literally no one would notice.
6 - You are going on 60K and can't seem to find a suitable place to end your first chapter.
7 - You'd rather read the phone book than work on your own.
8 - Your blog posts are infinitely more interesting than your plot.
9 - Even your Mom can't stand your MC.
10 - You can't edit out your -ly words because it would cut your word count in half.
Hehe, I don't know about you guys, but I've had at least half of these problems. No, I won't tell you which half. Have a great day!
