Writing progress

I've finished one story, put finishing touches on another, and am now currently stressing over a third. The goal is for a 'non-ending' story, always my favorite kind, especially in what I call 'slice of life' fiction. Still, getting to a non-ending is just as hard as getting to a coherent ending.

That's the other part of having taken a writing break: it's not as easy to get back into the swing of things. What used to be second-nature is now a deep struggle, and I find myself even more dissatisfied with what I've written than I might have been in the past. The internal editor is working full blast, full of criticism. Still, better than nothing, right? I should remember this, next time I decide to take a three-month writing break.
