So.. I've been writing for about 6 months, I've managed to get about halfway through a story and clocking up about 40 000 words. The thing is, I've starting to doubt whether its any good... Not so much the quality of the writing as the plot. A few people have read through it and I recieved some great feedback, but I can't seem to shake the feeling that it's just missing the mark. I go hot and cold, somedays I love it and others I hate it so much I want to set it on fire. I'm at the stage where I either commit to finishing the novel or start a fresh.... Previously I have aways written short stories, which have only taken a few days, I never felt like this writing them, I never doubted myself! Is this common when trying to write a novel? Are Should I risk wasting another year on it? Any Advice?
