As you all know, because I can't shut up about it, I haven't been writing recently. The other night I thought about my book and realized I didn't like the portion of the book that I had left off on. I tried to pinpoint the last part of the book I loved and I couldn't think of it. I realized that I didn't want to go back because I really didn't like what I had. I do love my characters and my idea but my execution was once again subpar.
So I did what any self punishing author would do. Restarted again. I have an opening scene that I love and think it's really original. I wrote down all of the characterstics of my main characters and groups. I was being wishy washy on some attributes and I didn't ever want to lose a character's personality or goals in the story.
I feel tons better and really feel this is the right direction for now. We will see what tomorrow brings but today I'm happy :)
