Hi! I wonder if anybody can help me to write try-fail cycles without the reader getting his/her pants bored off. I'm in the middle of my to-be-novel, and my characters have finally gotten from reacting to acting. Of course, they can't go for the real goal right away (understanding what's actually going on and thus coming up with a plan that works). But now that I write their attempts doomed to fail, I feel like such a fake. Or is that what's supposed to feel like at this stage? Anybody eager to share some wisdom?
