Because almost all of my traditional artsy diversions are still packed up due to a recent move, I have taken to my most "low tech" diversion of creative writing. I have yet again run into a road block with my story. It basically boils down to indecisiveness. I know where my main character will end up and who she will meet. However, I can't decide the circumstances that got her to that point. There are too many possibilities! I know her personality and her quirks. I know how she reacts to the character she meets. But what is her job? Is the character she is protecting her sister or a stranger that reminds her of her sister? Does she have a troubled childhood or are her “ghosts” more recent? I guess I might be too afraid to commit, or that it might be too stupid or not good enough. The story has already evolved from the original concept. What if I commit to one line of thought and then find later on that it was the wrong one? And so in my frustration over my indecision I am writing this to hang out in my frequent state of procrastination. Too much what if, not enough this is what it is. Sigh.
