Writing Block

Not writers' block. The blocking out of the revision of Oliver Drummond and the Four Horsemen is going well. So well in fact that I'm tempted - like a great many other writers - to start running before I've re-learned how to walk.

The amendments to sub-plot and the shuffling around of sequences as well as the holding back of information / character intent is all starting to fall into place. But I know that starting to write before the whole picture is in place leads to ruin (at worst) and major re-writes (at best) but I can see how tempting it is. I'm a writer damn it; I want to write.

Self control, Andy; self control. I'll have the blocking finished in a week or so and then the writing can commence. Oh, yes. And it will.
