And the mess of the “middle” continues. I had to rip apart chapters 8 and 9 and piece them all back together, but now chapter 10 is getting a hack-job as well. I have to cut out a scene I really like, too. Alas.
I printed off part of chapter 10 because I had two scenes that didn’t flow together, and I wanted to read it away from a computer and sort it out. Whilst doing this, I realized I had a big gaping plot hole that any smart reader would notice. Basically it was an error that makes my antagonist look like a moron, and I can’t be having that.
So I brainstorm, and I called up my BFF and forced her to brainstorm with me, and finally came to a solution. Deleting scenes, moving scenes, creating new scenes. I think it should all come together now—on my next read-through (AKA the revision where I vamp up the religious aspects of the story) I’ll know for sure.
In other news, I finally joined Twitter! My name is CNHolmberg if any of you likewise have accounts. :D
