The problem is when things aren't working, but there isn't a really definable reason. Everyone makes general comments that this part was their least favorite, etc., but no one knows why. Like with my first chapter. I realize that this is a critically important chapter, both as I'm searching for agents/publishers, but also eventually for potential purchasers. The pacing works, I think, as does the characterization, logical development, etc. But, I still feel like something is off...and I'm having a hard time moving on to the rest of my book with that stupid first chapter hanging there.
Writer's block? I suppose. I've revised the dumb thing several times, and it has improved, for sure. I've also been super busy with other life stuff. Hopefully, I'll be able to sit down tomorrow and sparkle it. (Yes, I made that up--"sparkle" is a noun. Way to go you grammar hound you).
