Maybe writing it down first would be good
But when I think of this story, I can focus on it only and then I fall asleep. Not before I've made progress or revised a scene or two.
It's the single minded focus that helps me sleep, not the story itself.
What is in my head is noticeably different, to me anyway haha, than what I have on paper. In my head, it's perfection, the ultimate dream/fantasy, everything is peachy for the most part. Like it's a hunky movie star instead of a high school foot ball coach. And she works for her parents but in the 'dream' has her own undecided successful business. On paper, well it becomes too perfect and too fantasy and too peachy for me. I have had to change the story a lot.
So much that it makes it hard to convert my 'dream' to my writing. It makes me forget things and I'll get to writing and get things backwards.
Makes me wonder which one I should change. The written or the imaginary? My imaginary one is farther along than my written one by dozens of chapters. But my written one has less sparkle and more reality.
BTW: What do you think of me sharing more stuff about my book? And would you be interested to see how far I am?
