Story Collapse

Bugger. The story I’ve been working on for the last three weeks reached crisis point today. Crisis point means (a) I hate it and (b) I think I have good reason to hate it. It’s almost inevitable that any story over a few thousand words will have these crises along the way. Hopefully when I look at it again the problems will be not as bad as I think, or I will see a way to solve them. Grrrrrr……

UPDATE 30/08/08: I’ve found a different hook into the story and feeling much happier about it today. Hooray!
