One Chapter One Too Many

2016 #ROW80 Round 3: Check-In #16 | 10 Minute Novelist: Update #29

I write linearly. I had tried to work out of order, but it had never worked for me. I like to know exactly what happens from point A to point B. For the last week and a half, I had been trying to work on my BDSM short story. By now, I have about three chapters 1, two chapters 2, and one and a half chapters 3.

The main problem I have is the main characters itself. I have a pretty good idea of who they are and what they want for their relationship when I’m looking at them separately. But when I try to work them together, they turn into teenagers or pushovers.

I guess that before I write another chapter 1, I’d have to go over their character profiles one more time and see what exactly is preventing them from reaching their HEA.

  1. Maybe they just don’t belong together. Or they need a bit more time and space to get there?

    I know! They want you to write a novel, because they know you’ve got nothing at else going on… =D
