Stuck between two scenes

I'm literally stuck between two scenes in my play. I shouldn't think of it now but I just can't help it. It's just words on paper for the moment (and might stay so if no one gets any interest in what I'm writing), but I can't stop thinking "what if"... What if it takes too long to move from one background to the other, will the play lose its dynamic right from the start? What if I move the first scene to the second part, would it then lose its impact and strength? What if I can't get the rights to use any music I want... and it goes on.
I should stop, really... I'm gonna try something new: what if I could just go on writing and then I'll see. If any director gets interested in my text... then only will we see.
Well, it feels good to talk sometimes, just talk, even if it's nonsense to most of the people hearing or reading about it. Even to me it sounds like nonsense, put I'm gonna post it anyway.

I've been back to write for a week or so now and, even after so many years, I am still puzzled about the tricks my own mind is playing on me concerning writing discipline and productivity. I usually press quite hard for discipline as I am a rather lazy person when it comes to writing but in case of some writer's block, I guess stepping back and trying to see the whole thing from a different perspective might be a good solution. And if that doesn't come to pass, just wait. It will happen one day. :-)

Ah discipline! I also lack that quality sometimes, especially when it comes to writing I'm afraid :)
But I guess that stepping back and trying to see from another perspective are actions that I can take! Thanks ;)

Do you know when you're talking this sort of 'nonsense' you are at your cutest?

Just keep on not making sense to yourself and the most beautiful of senses will come to you in the end.
