Hello. I've recently started a larger project, but after getting only 8 pages in I'm finding it difficult to continue. It's partly that I don't have much energy for writing these days, but also the story has opened up to a sandbox structure where there are multiple possibilities. Another reason is the story I'm working on is part of an series I've been developing over many years and it's important to me. This increases the pressure on continuing. I believe I could continue by starting to write the next section, but I've always written chronologically. Surely I won't have achieved the depth of character and setting I need in this new section to which I've skipped if I haven't written what comes before it, I think to myself. Same problem here, but I think I might need to do that, to work on the next section before going back to fill in the gaps, if I'm to make progress. Every time I open my document it just becomes overwhelming. Just need some reassurance. Does anyone else do this? Thanks.
