I've been writing a book for about two years now. You would think i'd be at least a hundred or so pages into it but no i'm maybe four or five pages in, i've rewritten the story about fifteen times each in varying lengths. So every time i get about 5-10 pages the amount of detail my minds tries to incorporate into the now ancient story buckles under itself and i hit a weird awkward point. The problem is every time i hit about five pages i find something i want to add to the storyline and because the idea is a crucial part of the story it makes me want to rewrite almost constantly which is annoying because id really like to actually finish the first book (its a trilogy). Just to show how OCD ive been the story has completely reworked itself about four times. It started with vampires and magic went to greek mythology and magic/vampires, greek mythology and magic no vampires, to now were im at a civilization that runs around magic (somehow it has the same story line and idea xD). So what im asking really is there any way to make it so i can actually stick with one idea and not be influenced by outside sources?
