It's been almost 2 months since I opened my scifi/fantasy-hybrid story. I was feeling optimistic today, so I opened the file, reread what I had written, and completely hated it. And wanted to start over, but I don't know how. I've started over soooo many times with this story and I've never been happy with any of them.

I've tried first and third person. I've tried starting at different points in the narrative. I've tweaked various elements until they snap and it still doesn't feel right.

I can tell you all about the plot of this story, the 'technical' aspects, so to speak, but the 'artistic' elements continue to elude me, and it's frustrating as hell.

This is why I didn't look at this story for 2 months.
