I just had to delete everything I wrote yesterday. It was dull, melodramatic and took the story in a dumb direction.
ARGH. Well, at least I can rewrite the scene and do it better this time. I hope. Maybe I should just insert a line note like: Get hero out of this situation through a combination of pluck, bravery and wit, move on to the next scene, and deal with it in the revision.
Except, since I don't work from an outline, the content of the next scene sort of depends on this one.
ARGH. Well, if I forge ahead, I guess I can always fix it in revision.
Ooh! Wait!!!! I just figured it out...... woohoo! Thank you, magic writerly blog of doom!!!!!
