Looking for some advice on how to proceed please. After extensive plotting, I wrote my first act of a crime thriller, just over 25k words. Overall, I really enjoyed the process. I found I would come up with ideas at work and look forward to getting home to write. I tried sticking to word targets and found 50% of the time I could get into the zone and the other 50% was a bit forced, but I was still fairly confident the writing was okay. So, before i pushed on, I converted the doc into an epub and started to read, hoping to get a idea if I can actually do this. The conclusion is a distinctly unhelpful, maybe. The parts where I was in "the zone" read pretty well and I hope are engaging. The rest is a bit meh. The act would benefit from a rewrite, but as much as I still want to complete the book, the motivation has gone and I'm having thoughts of scrapping the project. I'm sure many have been here before, what do I do guys?
