I was just talking to a writer friend about how I'm having so much difficulty writing the finale of Girl In Space.
She made a comment along the lines of, "Wow writer's block really sucks," which hit me like a pile of bricks.
Because I LITERALLY just gave a talk about how there is no such thing as writer's block.
With that in mind, I know I'm to blame here… I just don't know whether it's uncertainty or doubt or fear or frustration or mis-aligned expectations or [fill in the blank].
I currently have EIGHT different drafts of the latest episode, and each one has little bits that I like, but I'm not sure how to thread them all together into a cohesive whole. I know I need to "kill my darlings", but I'm overwhelmed by the number of darlings I have to kill.
I'm on day 3 of fretting over this thing and my friend suggested the next step is to take a break. But the pressure to finish keeps rising.
