The sound of my own wheels

Having trouble with Uncle Deppo. I believe that it’s good trouble, ultimately, but right now, it’s just frustrating and disheartening.

The issue is that the questions I’ve begun asking about certain elements of the story are putting a spotlight on the various cracks, gaps and flaws in the the piece as a whole. I’m now struggling with the decision to

  • Stick with the inspiration that led to the original story and try to find out where I went amiss and address those items individually, or
  • Truly re-write the story in a whole new direction, following more recent inspiration
  • Scrap it altogether

Important and necessary process that will result in a better final piece, regardless.

Not the most enjoyable process, regardless.
