    Deliberate Backtracking?

    Discussion in 'General Writing' started by MarchOfMephisto, Sep 23, 2009.

    I've been writing my story, and I've just got over the 30,000 word milestone. Yet, whilst being elated at this fact, I am also feeling a sense of dread. Every so often, when I realise I'm inching closer to the end of the story, I find myself backtracking in order to keep away from it.
    I feel as though once I have finished...I don't know. It's like I am deliberately backtracking in order to keep from the end.

    Has anyone else experienced this?

    lol I'm the complete opposite. I can't wait till the end, but then again that's probably because I have a few more books I have to write.

    Sometimes, but if you get excited about part 2, or another story, then you might want to finish this one quickly, so you can move on to the next.

    I know the feeling. As long as my story is unfinished, it has possibilities yet unknown to me, and I find that very exciting.
