When you've got to be ruthless.
I'm so guilty of this! I know exactly how my characters develop and everything and how all the little intricacies work but I never write them.
Writing problems #63 You spend more time planning what you are going to write then actually writing.
So, I'm working on a short story right now. And its kinda controversial, and makes no frickin' sense.....
"Um... a peppy little story about a serial killer who just kidnapped a little girl and the FBI is desperately trying to save her?..."
EVER TRIED WRITING SOMETHING YOU ABSOLUTELY HATE BUT YOU KNOW YOU HAVE TO WRITE IT ANYWAY FOR EVERYTHING ELSE TO MAKE SO MUCH MORE SENSE? YEAH. THAT'S MY LIFE.
Do NOT look up fifty synonyms for that word. Instead, put a little extra effort into finding ways NOT to use the word.
Yep, yep and yep. I also see a lot of images on Pinterest that I would love to use in stories or I recognize people that could be from them.

Heh heh. We may strive for the first one, but let's face it, we often end up doing the second one. And sometimes we do both at once.
