Writing Woes

I have been dutifully outlining my current novel for the last two days. I have laid out the plot and storyline for the next six months for my characters, and I have to say…

I am very mad at my characters. I am thinking the only way to solve this mess is to kill one of them off.

Would that work for teen fiction? About 80 pages in, the male lead just dies and doesn’t come back as a ghost or vampire?

Do other writers go through this? I hope someone tells me what these imaginary high schoolers should do next. It’s just one of those days.

I’m off to keep banging my head against my desk, reading author interviews, and hope my playlist of Coldplay and The Cure solve my problems.
