I occasionally have this problem when I write. It only crops up every now and then and it kinda gets in the way of my writing. No biggee, just a small niggling thing. It's called PLOT.
Ever have that problem?
My writing genre falls somewhere between Science Fantasy and New Weird so I guess you could say it's fairly plot driven. The challenge for me is that my process for plot development has yet to fully…congeal. I almost (emphasis on almost) always have a pretty solid storyline in mind when I start, but all too often my train of thought gets derailed along the line. I realize this is a serious impediment to me having an easy time of writing and I'm considering professional counseling. Possibly electro-shock therapy.
But first I thought I'd check and see if I'm the only one who suffers from this malady. I've heard of organic writers, full of free love (for prose!) and rigid outliners with their graphs and charts and compasses, but I don't really like either of those tactics. I kinda like to fall somewhere in the middle. Maybe that's my problem.
Anybody else? Where do you fall? Does plot ever get in the way of your story?
