Less Complicated

The HoursThe update?

I’ve been sick for the past week. Just a cold, but it’s sapped my productivity.

The one good thing that came out of it was realizing my WIP is way too complicated. I decided to cut two of the five characters whose lives intertwine. (Ever seen The Hours? Like that…)

I have backed up and restarted, plotting from the beginning. I don’t have to throw away most of what I’ve written… only about 1/4 of it. I’ll be drafting some as I plot…this might end up being an awkward process, but this story is worth it. I need to preserve the weirdness while not leaving the reader completely lost.

I can do that.
