MCA tells me I’m to trust you.
Now, I’ve been fairly happy with our working arrangement so far. You come up with the ideas; I write them. It’s simple. It works.
But now I have a problem.
You know that idea you gave me for a contemporary werewolf story? The tragic love story where their relationship spirals into darkness?
I love that idea, I really do. But I keep getting stuck.
I’ve tried everything–alternating points of view, changing protagonists, adding new twists, taking away other twists, making it a real-time account, making the story jump between timelines, starting at the beginning, starting at the end….
Nothing works, and I can’t figure out why.
So I’m going to take MCA’s words to heart, and trust you, and say:
Here, Fred. This project is shelved. Please figure out why it’s not working. I won’t think about it. I won’t pester you for answers. I’ll leave it entirely in your capable hands.
And hopefully, in a day, a month, or a year, you’ll have a solution.
In the meantime, I’ll be working on other stories that don’t make my head hurt.
You know where to find me.
