seriously. i've been working on this book for a couple months and i'm at 85 pages, or about 25,000 words. now that i'm this far, i'm like... this sucks. i suck at writing. who would want to read this? i feel like my plot isn't epic enough, or like it's convoluted or something. i guess i just don't know when to reveal what information. i want it to be a logical, linear development of the backstory but i fear i'm giving too much information too explicitly or... or something!
i just need to get back to reading some books. after i had read the road i was really able to refine my writing of my old post-apocalyptic book to be darker and grittier. i want to have that feeling again, where i can go back and reword things and be like "yeah, that's how it should be said, not this way."
