When writing, I like to think of myself as a plotter but wind up being a pantser (I love that word).

In that, I like plotty fiction and attempt to write an outline or at least work out where I'm heading beforehand, and I have at least a decent grasp on the concept of character motivation and rising conflict and etc.

But, generally, I can only come up with a beginning and an end, and what happens in the middle is a complete mystery. When I brainstorm the scenes, or try writing the beginning and hoping the middle will come out as naturally, I'm usually dissatisfied with whatever I come up with and the whole story grinds to a halt.

I have an ongoing word count atm, but most of it is from me having an idea and just rambling about it for about fifteen minutes every night. It's not bad at the moment because I am so rusty I need all the practice I can get, and I quite like some of the ideas I've come up with (jeez some of them are weird though lmao)

The issue is my goal is to write something and then let other people, you know, READ IT! All the weirdest ideas in the world don't mean sauce, if I can't make an entertaining story out of them that doesn't read like I got bored in the middle

If I want to achieve my goal for this year, I have to find a solution to this problem.
