You might have noticed that I haven't posted any stories lately. Writer's block is part of that, another part is that I don't like to display something that is completely and utterly wrong.
A story is like a river. It should flow downhill toward an ultimate end. This flow might be a leisurely ride in a tube, a nail-biting ride on whitewater, or something in between. The point is, when you do something unnatural the river ceases being a river and the story ceases being a story.
Anyway, so I read through what I had written on part 9 of "The Line" last night and realized that I was trying to make water run uphill. I probably really noticed this quite a while ago but I was just unwilling to do what had to be done. I thought I could fix what I had written so the work wouldn't go to waste. Of course any writer will tell you if something isn't working than THROW IT THE FUCK AWAY AND START OVER!
So that's what I did.
And I'm much happier with how things are progressing now.
