Second guessing

I have spent the last couple days debating my outline. Realistically, I don’t think I really need to change anything to the story itself, but what I’ve been contemplating is some of the lack of detail my outline holds. I had many ideas which I incorporated into the outline itself, but there are a couple parts, which as I look at them, I feel as though it’s lacking something; some detail that could make it better. Perhaps it is because I am reading a fair bit while writing as well.
Anyway, I’m thinking of re-working my outline a bit and adding in more details to help it better form my writing. I am about to reach a somewhat important part of the story and it involves something more unique and original. The idea I have will work, but it’s the execution and the details that will make a big difference. It is a concern I have that it won’t come across the way I want it to in the rough copy.

That seems a bit scattered and I apologize for that. I have been in the mids of thinking about my outline and the parts I am about to write quite a bit lately; it has been weighing heavy on my mind. I felt the urge to talk about it but as you might be able to see, my thoughts are still rather scattered.

I just thought I would post about it as a concern I have as a writer. There are lots of things that go through my head as I think about my manuscript and how I want things to turn out. I am sure I’m not the only writer with this problem.


About rachelsparling

I'm a writer working on a manuscript for a novel. I love to write and I've been doing it for 17 years. Through several story ideas I have figured out what works and what doesn't, and I've learned a lot about myself and my writing style. I love to read and escape to many different worlds. I've also learned a lot about good writing and bad writing through both reading a lot and acquiring an education in English literature, and becoming an ESL teacher. I enjoy filming and photographing all sorts of things and putting together short documentaries and videos. I love my camera.
