Hi all! 1) I'm a new member, 2) this is my first thread, and 3) I had one too many cups of coffee today, so (please) be gentle! Mostly I'm here to commiserate, as most people in my real life don't care to hear about my writing road blocks. I'm not exactly experiencing a road block right now (hooray), but I often find myself staring at the screen for far too long, contemplating whether I can/should use a certain word in my work-in-progress YA sci-fi/fantasy novel. Most recently, my cursor hovered over 'glass' for at least five minutes. Can I say glass? I decided that I could. But what about 'lavender?' I guess I could. The color itself has a spot in the dictionary. But on the other hand, I'm sure that definition originated from the color of the plant. A plant that grows on Earth. KWIM? Am I the only person writing a setting outside the bounds of Earth who does this to themselves? I feel like I waste so much time!
