Because it just is.
When you blog, you have the freedom to cut out quite a few details due to the fact that you don't want to bore your readers to tears. However, when you are attempting to write a story in its entirety, details you must include. I've always been really good at giving way too many details when telling a story, but for some reason THIS IS HARDER.
It may also have to do with the fact that some of the details in this story are hard and messy and muddy and fuzzy and scary to tell. Navigating through the way to delicately lay them out in an organized line can be tricky.
Progress is being made though. I have a working title (Sweet Richard) and at least the draft of a first chapter written, with the shell of a second chapter in place.
How cute was I to think this would be just a piece of cake.
Chugging along and questioning myself daily.
