So, has anyone started writing a book and doubted its potential before it got finished? I ask this because, I've gotten around 10,000 words in, but I just can't help shake the feeling that it'll turn out to be a hot pile of garbage. It's a story about the sides of people that don't get shown. Centered around a gaming tournament. It's supposed to be reminiscent of a Judd Apatow movie, only, y'know- good! And maybe a mix of something like mighty ducks for good measure (see why I think it'll be bad yet? ) Perhaps it's because of the odd setting, but i feel like it'll be so crap. So what I'm getting at is, what is the best course of action for a work that you're not too sure of? Rush through it? Put it off for a while? Stop over-thinking things so much? And also. does anyone know of a similar book that is not Ready Player One? I feel like reading books like my idea may be a good idea, I'm just not too sure if they exist. Gaming stories or comedies would do i suppose. OH, and they should be heavily grounded in reality, since reading about Werewolves who play Tetris might not do me much good... Or will it?
