Dear mister Bending Bendis. I started writing a script (movie-like, so it seems), but I'm stuck at early stages, because I feel there are so many roads the story could take. It's like my characters made me start writing, and now they're waiting on me to decide what great adventures they're gonna live. Takes too much time exploring every option (slow-thinker). This might not be a question. This might just be me, looking at my pens and pads with no clue at all.

First of all, you need to sit down and figure out your ending. if you figure out your ending you’ll figure out why you are writing what you are writing.

 you need to get to a place where the characters are choosing the story through you not vice versa.
