Maybe I’m not decisive enough to write a book.
Making my mind up is my problem.
How many characters are too many? Can the sister do the job that the best friend was going to do? Or should I use both? What are the advantages and disadvantages of having both or only one?
(Note to authors: A reader should never have to keep a ‘who is who’ list, tucked inside the front cover. They only realize this on page 56 and then it is too late.)
The writer in me has no experience on which to base any decision. Even when my head has chosen the way to go, it starts to uhm and ah all by itself. Again.
So I start to wonder if I’m telling the right story.
Can I do this?
When I am not doing it, I know I can do it, but when I begin to do it, I doubt myself.
I am pondering with abandoning my novel, and starting again… something different.
Maybe my demon has reinvented himself because I won the last battle. He has come back as Indecision with a question mark of Confidence.
