Wannabe Writers 
I saw this new Meme over at Confessions of the Un-Published- (http://www.sarahdarlington.com/) and it sparked my interest as I am as well a wannabe unpublished writer. So this seems to be a Meme dedicated to fellow reviewers helping one another to overcome whatever writing trouble we're having - and less face it, helping eachother is fun. :)
Where I am in the writing process: I'm actually not sure where I am in my writing process honestly. I know that sounds strange, but my story is quite complex and I'm not entirely sure where it will take me in the end, I have an idea of where I feel it will end up but my characters deffinately have minds of their own. I've written what I previously thought would be half... but now it seems I have barely scratched the surface.
My Current Problems: I'm not stuck - I refuse to say that, but I am unsure of how to write certain scenes which drives me crazy. I know that I should just carry on and continue writing it, leave my editing for later but it's deffinately easier said than done.
Question of the Week: How do you stay motivated?
I've been having problems with this very issue for awhile myself. I have been working on my book since November of 2007 - which seems insane to me thinking about it now. I was very in to it for awhile, but then I read On Writing by Stephen King and I took his "time off" aproach seriously and though it did work when I returned, it took me awhile to return which was the problem.
What do you do to stay motivated?
