August 2014 IWSG

Hey everybody! Hope you’re all doing fantastic! Today is the first Wednesday of a new month so it’s time again for another IWSG. :D

The Insecure Writer’s Support Group is a wonderful place where writers can share their worries and failures as well as their successes and advice. Led by our fearless leader Alex J. Cavanaugh, IWSG meets the first Wednesday of every month and you can join on his site here. There's also a brand new website now so be sure to check it out here.

So I’ve been intermittently working on a Young Adult Faery novel for a couple months now and I’m about a third of the way through the novel and I hate it. All of it. I want to light it on fire and watch it burn. My main character seems to lack a drive to do anything and the story feels flat. The beginning came very easily, but I have to admit beginnings are probably the easiest part for me. I also have a deadline on this project since it is for a class I’m working on so I can’t afford to set it aside for now. What did you do when you completely fell out of love on a project? Was there anything you did that helped you reignite that spark and helped you finish the project you were working on?

Let me know in the comments below! :D
