You’ve written, and written and written, and now you can’t. So what do you do next?
My favorite is to roll back, to start fresh and write a prologue. Now, some people will tell you to never have a prologue in your writing, are they correct? I don’t know. However, keep in mind that not everything you write will make it into your book, it’s totally okay to write things that don’t go into your finished manuscript. This is something to help you get to know your characters, and their back story. Write thousands of words of backstory if it helps. Even if it doesn’t make it into your finished work, there’s no reason not to write it. If you’re one of those people who insist that you have to use it, if you’re going to write it, you can provide it free on your blog, as a teaser for people to read your book, or as an extra treat for people who read your book then hunt down your blog.
