I really want to, honesty! I want to sit down and start into the fifth chapter! MY biggest writing problem is motivation. I can never let my characters rest and find a place where they are comfortable. If I had been Tolkien, LotR would have ended in Rivendell. If I has been Shannon Hale, Ani would have stayed with Gilsa and been a farm girl. They were safe for a moment and did not have any immediate goals.
So where I am: My main character is in a city, with friends after a long journey. There are no known enemies near by. I have no motivation to finish. My character is not on a mission at the time. I have no reason to move him on, I am not excited to write about him. I'm thinking now would be a good time for the maiming to occur.... I also have no plot at this time. I have a conflict already that is connected to a larger one, but I have no clue what will happen with the larger one, or when, or how to introduce it.
Would it be ok if I emailed some of you what I have written so far and asking you to guess what would happen next logically, knowing that I shall completely trash your ideas and do something completely illogical and unexpected?
