What’s really happening is that I’m working on an idea for a novel. I’m a perfectionist, you see, so even this simple task, which should probably only take a couple of weeks, has been ongoing for a few years now. I know what I want it to be, I can ‘see’ it in my mind’s eye, but I can’t spell it out for myself. I wish someone else would.
How do I know what I’m thinking until I see what I say?
Well, that’s just it. I have to say it in some way, shape or form eventually. Let me try…
- it has something to do with stars, either as a metaphor or imagery or something
- it’s set in an enclosed space
- man vs man.
I’ve been holding on to this nugget of information for too long. It needs to grow into something more or it will ‘burn out’ before it has a chance to shine.
Just a frustrated post to myself really, but if you take anything away from it, let it be this: say what you want, it’s the only way to know what it is.
