My one character is in such a place that there is really only three things she can do: she can run away, punch a guy in the throat, or bring her knee up between his legs. She's not really the "flee-from-danger" type girl (unless it's her mother, but we won't talk about that), so that leaves the last two. I'd rather she hit him in the throat, but I looked it up, and there's actually quite a good chance he could die from that. And he can't die (at least, not yet). So that leave the last one.
So, fine, what's the big deal? I DON'T KNOW WHAT THE BIG DEAL IS, AND THAT'S A BIG DEAL. I feel irrationally squeamish about writing that, like anyone who reads that will judge me and laugh at me and be like, "why on earth would you write something so stupid?"
And I KNOW that you're supposed to "write bravely" and "write for yourself" and yada yada yada, I guess I'm just not good at that yet. -.-
So basically, the entire point of this post was to ask whether anyone else has things they feel weird writing about, or if its just me, and I should suck it up and go back and finish that scene. I mean, I suppose I have to suck it up and go back anyway, but...PLEASE TELL ME I'M NOT ALONE!! *wails*
Thanks, cafe press. Thanks.
