Have you ever had writer’s overload? This must be the yin to the yang of writer’s block. What is the cure? Please tell me….
I’m working on the story Sunrise at The Palace Diner and it evolved scene-by-scene so I’m continuing with that format. It’s also blog-friendly, which is excellent because I want to continue with the blogging.
Great, so what’s the problem?
Scenes are jumping out at me and they don’t fit with the story line. Characters are doing things that are…well…out of character!
Can we have a little discipline and order, please?
I’ve tried blocking out these scenes but when I do that I can’t focus properly on other scenes. Should I write through these yin scenes? It looks like I’ll have to. Maybe they’ll fit later, or maybe they belong in another story altogether.

And it helps.
