Pg 106 and holding
Hi! I'm new here.
I am an aspiring fiction writer, but I have this 106-page dilemma:
I can't write fiction until I get a memoir written. Every time I sit down to write fiction, all I can think about is this memoir. And it's about--yikes--my job. But I don't know where I'm going with the memoir. I don't know what the focus is. The job drives me crazy, but it's good material. I'm writing blind, but it has to be done. I've tried outlining. I've tried note cards. And I can't write the ending because, in life, I won't get the ending I want and I don't know how to write an ending that remains unresolved.
I am a participant in the NaNoWriMo this year and I know I am supposed to be writing fiction, but I thought it would be a suitable way to get this written instead. So I am stuck at page 106. I could probably go on forever just writing disconnected scenes, but what I'm really looking for is connection.
How do you write a memoir about a crappy job and hope that it will actually be, well, readable?
Any advice/inspiration would be appreciated,
