It’s two am. You’ve been staring at your work in progress (WIP) for an hour and a half, trying to figure out how to fix this scene:
Your protagonist – a knight named Sir Reginald – is frantically racing to save your heroine – princess Desdimona – from the malevolent dragon, Thorax.
The Princess has a pet dragon, Skiffle, who is doing her best to defend her lady but has been wounded in the battle and is whimpering in the corner – no help, there.
You’ve tried having the dragon force his way into the castle, but he always ends up eating your princess before you can get your knight over there from the nearby shire.
You’ve written and re-written the scene seven ways to Sunday, and you are still not happy with it. You try to get over it, move on to other things, but the problem gnaws at you, making life miserable.
What’s a writer to do?
Tune in this week as the ladies discuss tips and tricks for staying sane when your Work In Progress (WIP) is driving you crazy!
