2016 #ROW80 Round 4: Check-In #20 | 10 Minute Novelist: Update #42
For the last couple of weeks, I have been trying to write a short story. I think I started like three times already, and that’s without counting the other two to three ideas I put aside.
Everything had worked fine with all the stories. The problem is getting interested enough in one of them to see it through. I think I still trying to find my style, and that’s what’s stopping me from moving forward.
I have the names, ideas, etc. for each one, but after a couple of hours of thinking about them, I lose interest. I think my problem has to do with the story’s plot. I can make my characters good and interesting, but I get bored just because they are lacking action. I spent so much time getting to know my boys, that I forget to show the reader their struggles.
So one of my 2017 resolutions is to work on my stories complexity and to try to write more challenging ones.
