Argghhhh!

I'm stuck. The words flowed when I was developing the series backstory and story summaries. I was happy with my first chapter in the first book. Got back several great crits, some so-so and a couple that made me really think about the direction I was going.

So now? I'm stuck. Frustrated. Aarrgghhhh! I need to be writing furiously right now to be done in time for the pitch. But if the first couple of chapters are off...not going to work.

Maybe if I go back to several of the books I've read lately and dissect the first chapters...

Hope everyone else is feeling positive and productive!! Happy writing.

Sorry you're stuck, honey. I'm in kind of a rut myself. Can't get myself to revise the last chapter of HOT FUN. Sending positive thoughts in your direction. Do the same for me please ...

Thanks, sweets. I hate feeling like this, but it must be something in the air. Alot of people I've talked to recently have said the same. I'll definitely keep you in my thoughts and prayers!!

Eeek! Hopefully I didn't make you lose your...muse. >.<

Feel free to start a brainstorm thread. I'll be happy to chime in. ;)

You made me think...that's a good thing!! There are obviously alot of holes that need to be addressed. Thats why I love my crit partners! I'm going to try a different approach and will beg you to take another look. ;)
