So...when will I have Something Interesting To Blog About Again?

Beats me.

Well, I have been writing:

26345 / 100000


Of course, after writing 7K this weekend, it occured to me I left out two characters.

Which now makes me wonder if I need those two characters.

I'm guessing not.

Great word count!

And hey, better to figure out you don't need those two characters now instead of...oh...when the manuscript is finished, right?

Guess who's been chatting with your wonderful editor???? hmmm... I wonder:)

How does one leave out two characters? :) See THIS is why I suck at writing!

This is my dilemma: wine or write? write or wine... Wine wins out everytime! :)

Um, you??? Huh???

I used two characters' POVs near the beginning (trying to avoid info dumps from the first story). Then I got hooked on the two MCs and forgot about the other 2. Now I want to go back and revise and knock 'em out entirely.

Waiting to see how inspired I am today...

Not very. Dang.

LOL! I love learning the secrets behind a great writer. ;-) I agree with above poster, better to decide you don't need them now, than later...

Well, I kinda need the characters, but NOT their stupid POVs which is how I originally wrote it. So now I'm rewriting. Or trying to anyway. ;)
