Not only am I stubborn, I am lazy, and therein lies the true problem. I'm too lazy to stop and rework my scene list. Too lazy to ask myself some basic questions about character, about need, about goals and vision.
One of these days I'm going to learn that it actually facilitates my laziness to do a bit of groundwork before slaving over words that will only have to be rewritten. Obviously that day hasn't happend yet. Or rather, I guess it has, just now.
So, I shall, from here on out, hold this kernel of truth tightly to my breast and do my utmost to stop and look around me from time to time, especially when I'm struggling with the sense that not all is well in my little writer's head. Yes, I shall...right up until that angry god makes me forget, yet again, my hard won lesson.
