It’s that time again. I’ve received an editorial report on one of my novels and I have more work to do, this time on certain aspects of the plot.
Tweaking plot elements to make them more convincing sometimes brings about the opposite and the changes make the story worse. I’m working with various brainstorming techniques, trying to get to the heart of the matter. Asking questions like, what do I really want here? Letting my imagination do the work. Tweaking doesn’t mean getting rid of. Just adapting ideas slightly.
On and on it goes.
