P.P.S. I made a journal on DA.
Perhaps having an “Act Two” problem (like I mentioned in the journal) is akin to liking someone superficially?… Once you get into a relationship with that person, and you begin to lose that initial steam, you need ‘something else’ in order for you to stay. It may have something to do with their charm, their spirituality, their personality (I hope so), but it’s definitely something deeper than just their looks or their initial character. I think the same thing has to be done with our stories. We have to make sure we’ve loving it and working on it for the right reasons.
I’ve also learned the benefit out outlining… helps you see why you’re doing the story in the first place… 🙂
