Oh my GOD so many things about this book are driving me around the bend right now. Everything is wrong. My first chapter which I thought two days ago was much improved is awful again. My hook isn’t hooky at all. It’s a sharp pin that pokes and stabs and says “don’t read me! don’t read me!” Some of my characters are shockingly one-dimensional and way underdeveloped. The song lyrics I struggled all day to write today are at best amateurish. And the formatting! The formatting is all wrong.
Revising it into what I want it to be is like trying to stuff a live octopus into a lunchbox.
Last week we were such good friends. I loved you. What happened? Where did we go wrong?
I’m ready to walk away.
