Well, I have most of the important scenes in my story already planned, which I think is actually a trap I fell into... Basically, it's like this: my story is divided between the time in which the main character is eight-years-old and the time she's seventeen. I'm writing tied to the timeline, so the scenes of her being a child are being written first, but I have already written some scenes into the future. The thing is, I can't wait to start writing the scenes in which she's seventeen, but I have the whole beginning in which she's eight to write, so what's happening is that I feel I sometimes rush this beginning to get to the more fun parts faster. But I want to write the beginning with the same level of quality of the latter parts... What should I do in this case? The beginning is crucial since it defines her personality for the remainder of the story, so I can't write it badly, it wouldn't do my work justice. I find that I'm with my hands tied... Maybe it's also due to me forcing myself to write when I'm not so inspired, but I don't know. Any ideas?
