By this I mean, that the middle of my WIP continues to expand as I delay moving the plot forward. At page 188, it is time to get to the meat of the story, and I know what that meat is, but it's all about numbers/money and I have no head for them.
I just can't focus on numbers at all. Okay, why did I choose a plot that was about money? Someone advised me (well, my kid) to find a true crime story with the necessary details, a story that I could relate to and make it mine. And it worked as far as understanding the main dynamic, creating some nifty characters. Pages 1-188, I'm into character and having a ball. But now that gun on the mantle has to fire.
Sad to say, I'm not really interested in the mechanics of scams and frauds and money laundering, but now it's time for that to take place. If I don't like it, you can be sure, you probably won't either. Maybe she can just kill someone and forget the rest. I can live with it.
Do you delay parts of your story or is it just me? Does anyone know a good book that explains these things for the layman?
