I got really into writing late last night, and I also did more words today. So not only am I caught up to my schedule, but I’m actually ahead! So exciting! I’m just getting to some really intense scenes in the story, and some of the side plots are being brought to a close. I’ve noticed that, while my main plot has stayed basic, the side plots and characters are all over the place. I bring in a character and then forget about them for the rest of the story.
I’ll probably need to get rid of a lot of the side plots, unless I can figure out how to work them into the main story better. Have you ever done that? Where you get super into a side plot and then realize it has no point whatsoever to the main plot and you should probably just get rid of all the scenes featuring that side plot. Well, I’ve had a couple of those in the book I’m writing.
But I have no time for rewriting. Instead, I must always climb up on the word count ladder.
