Ever had story that you take out almost every day trying to finish it but you are just never happy with how it turns out? Every day you put it away more frustrated than you were before you started it. That is me with one specific story that I have been working on for a few weeks now. I realize that a few weeks is not that long to be ready to give up on a story already, but I am getting to the point where I have walked away from it and come back several times, and every time the same thing happens. I read it, I change a few things, then I change a few things back, then I read it again, then I sigh. Then I put it away.
I wonder to myself, will this ever become a story? Will I ever be able to finish it? I do not know the answers to these questions but what I do know is throughout writing this failed story I have been inspired to write many more successful ones. I guess if all this failed story ever is is a pathway to other stories then I will continue to struggle with it, because sometimes inspiration can come from the most unlikely of places.
