I’ve been drafting on and off my first draft of a COG’s project in the last few weeks and it has been an absolute hair yanking experience for me. Especially with the clipped-on feelings of inadequacy and the followed up complete destruction of my self-esteem after hours after hours of sitting in front of a blank page.
The most I’ve came up with was two paragraphs, which I deleted the next day and returned to a bunch of *create lines and the chapter’s name.
It obviously has to do with the fact that I was so used to writing a linear plot, fixed protagonists and single paths for a normal novel and I was so overwhelmed by this new method of writing that I was totally confuzzled and lost. (Haven’t made it out of it yet, so far).
Well… since y’all have plenty of… maturity with this, and some of you may have fallen into this dark, depressing and twisted path of mine, may kindly offer me some tips about this transition.
