How to Love Your Story Again
Fallen gradually (or suddenly) out of love with your current project? We’ve all been there at some point or another. You feel unmotivated, uninspired. You look back on everything you’ve done and you’re no longer satisfied with it. Your story, which was once the most flawless of diamonds, has been found to contain cracks, smudges, and flaws. You want nothing to do with it, but, unfortunately, like an unhappily married couple with children to raise, you have put so much time into your story that you’re pretty much forced to see it through.
But what can be done? Is it even possible to save the story without completely re-writing it? Or is the idea so unlikeable that you want to burn the entire thing to ashes? Whatever position you’re in, there are solutions to your troubles. Even if you’re on a schedule. Take a gander at the following list of options, and then put into action whichever suits your needs.
