Raising Hell: Stumbling Blocks

I've been thinking about it for way too long now. I'm inside my head and I don't know how to get out. What I mean is that I'm plodding at too slow of a pace toward the finish line. I want to be done with this first draft of this first issue sooner than I am.

I want to be done now so I can probably throw it all away and start over. Or at least throw away large portions. In that regards, finishing the first draft before I fix problems seems wasteful. Those are a lot of words and pages that I'll have done that'll never go anywhere.

As I've mentioned before, I think I'd just rather see all the pieces of the puzzle before I start figure out what ones don't fit where. It might cost me time, but I hope it pays me quality.

That's the bargaining it seems you'll always have to do with yourself when it comes to personal projects. What will cost me the most? What will pay me the most?

And how do I get these things that are in my way out of my way?

That's the real question lately. If I know there are things to lose, pratfalls to avoid, how do I lose and avoid them?

It seems that my answer, now at least, is to go over and through them in whatever way I can and let the pieces fall as they may.
