Have you ever had trouble “stopping”? Let me explain. You are writing and there is no end in sight. You may have an outline you are going by but as you write the story keeps unfolding and your outline is appearing outdated. You can’t leave your “world” you created, you can’t “stop” the story with a “The End”. You are compelled to keep writing or you entertain the idea of “maybe it should be a trilogy” and yet it keeps growing. The story continues to unfold. There is so much you want to tell in this vast story of yours…
Maybe it started as a short story and grew to a novel of epic proportions. Maybe it is a TV script that has grown to a whole season’s worth of material. Maybe it was a Haiku that turned into “Only as Life” ( by Nikhil Parekh.)
So have you?
Have you ever had trouble stopping?
