I'm STUCK :(

For crap's sake and I HATE it.

So, I'm writing a proposal for my agent, right? Five chapters and an outline of ze proposed book.

No big thang you say, yes?

Oy and Vay. It's killing me. LOLLOL. Here's the thing. I'm a pantzer. I write as I go. I don't know what's going to happen after chapter five. I didn't know what would happen in chapter two until I wrote it.

I have amassed 30k thus far. I need another 60k to complete the book. I wrote the proposal up to chapter five, but again I say, chapter five is WRITTEN. I can outline all the details for that. I don't have chapter six through 9 gozillion yet. I can't outline what I don't have.

I hate that I don't plot shit out before I write it. I just write it. I get a crazy title in my head and I go. However, the joy of just writing a proposal is this--you don't have to finish the book if no one wants it, right? Or you can shorten it to fit an e-pub yadda, yadda, yadda. But for some reason, I can't seem to just do that.

Frankly, that sucks big, fat weenies.

I know what I think might want to happen, but the outline still won't be as detailed as the first five chapters outlined are.

See my rock and my hard place here?


DC :)
