February 13th 2023 - The messy bit

There comes a point whenever I'm writing a short story where it feels like I lose control of it.

Somewhere along the line, it morphs into a sticky globular lump that can't be made sense of.

How to push past this phase is something I've yet to figure out. I suspect that it's endless revision and re-writing. Something I've always struggled to keep the momentum with.

I may switch to another project so I can have some relief between revisions on this one. But I will try and push this through some edits. I expect this is the story I will be sharing with my course in a couple of weeks so it would be good to revise as much as I can.
