Well, I finally feel like I made significant progress yesterday! I moved around a bunch of scenes to create a flow I think works better. I’ve been concerned about the sequence and timing of events and felt the story could drag and readers would lose interest. I was also worried if there was sufficient character motivation.
Don’t get me wrong. I have a whole lot of writing and re-writing left to do. With the changes, I need to modify a lot of transitions and create some new ones. Characters and settings need to be more fully developed. I want to add more sub-plots. In the original draft, I only had one sub-plot, and it was really more character back story than sub-plot.
Still, I’m glowing in the success I have from yesterday. This morning, I reorganized my printed copy to reflect the changes. It feels like progress. Progress is good.
Now, back to the grindstone!
