It’s a frustrating thing when you get through one chapter and everything is going smoothly and with pace. You close the computer down for the night thinking that the next day will see you pick up from exactly the same point and bomb away exactly as you were.
Then, the next day, you get about four words in and think to yourself ‘What exactly were these two characters doing again?”.
Then everything falls to bits.
Any others writers out there sometimes find that they’re struggling for an ‘exit’ out of a chapter? Currently I have two characters just waffling on whilst eating scrambled eggs in an American diner that happens to be situated in a Scottish town.
I’ve perhaps overdone this one.
