Move forward. Take an occasional left or right, but overall generally, keep moving forward.
Don’t go the U-turn only to start the journey all over again, and questioning the turns you took earlier.

You might find a ton of new ways, but you’ll end up nowhere.

The truth is that there are myriad ways to get your message across, just like there are multiple ways when travelling to get from point A to point B.
But you trying to figure out the perfect structure before you write is like a dog chasing its own tail.

The only frustrating thing in your case would be that you don’t even have the tail you’re chasing. 😛

First, write.
Finish the first draft.
Then edit it.

I’ve made this mistake of restructuring the re-structuring of the structure many times and as a result of which, I have multiple Evernote notebooks all approaching the subject of story-telling and book-writing from different angles and now it’s all too confusing to merge even 2 of those angles to make a single meaningful one.
