Years ago, I sent my script to a consultant. Like many (all?) newbie writers, it had major structural issues -- but, the consultant seemed very interested in my concept, and strongly encouraged me not to give up on it. He suggested I turn it into a one-page synopsis, and iterate on that until it's solid. (He also offered to give feedback on that synopsis for free, which I take as a vote of confidence that it's workable.) After a couple years of iterating, I reached a point where the consultant effectively gave the synopsis a consider -- but it would need more detail, thus it was time to move on to the treatment. I've been iterating on the treatment now for over a year, and while the story is a hundred times better than my first draft (and ten times better than the synopsis he liked), I'm sick of it. Whenever I make a full pass over the treatment, I find it so incredibly boring that I want to give up. So, I'm stuck wondering why, and would love some insight. I have five leading theories: I've just read it too many times. Between the synopsis and the treatment, I've read it probably two hundred times. Would any story hold up after 200 readings? And, if it's not a problem, do I need to just keep pushing through? The story still needs major work. If it was really good -- good enough to break into the industry -- then no matter how many times I'd read it, I'd love it. (And, to be fair, I do still love the story -- I just hate reading it.) It's difficult to make treatments/synopses page-turners (or, I just don't know how). When I try to show what's happening, it doesn't fit -- at that point, I'm writing the script. So, I end up telling what's happening. There's little-to-no dialogue, little suspense, and even mystery is difficult to convey in such an abridged form. I have to tell what characters are thinking, tell what their arcs are, tell the mystery, etc. I stink at writing. Maybe I'm okay at coming up with the characters, setting and plot, but my writing is boring. I can't write a suspenseful sentence, let alone a suspenseful paragraph, scene or script. I've spent too many years on it / I don't have the energy. The problem is that I have a very mentally demanding day job and two young kids at home, so finding even a half-hour to write each day is a struggle. I'd like to work on it more, but just can't right now. Perhaps if I'd been able to iterate over the course of weeks or months, or if I had a different job, then I wouldn't feel so burnt out. Has anyone else felt this way, or does anyone have any insight or experience they can share?
