Daily Writing Check-in: May 28, 2019

Words/Time:  59 minutes doing preliminary work for the new outline of “Protector.”

I anticipated it being difficult to try to sort through the scenes in the first draft and decide what was extemporaneous to what the story became and needed to be cut. But I had no idea how difficult it would be. I did a lot of staring and thinking today, and trying to come up with how to even sort through the scenes and figure out how to make the story flow without some scenes that I think might need cut. I fear I’m losing too much, but that if I keep some of this just to make it flow better, it will make the real purpose of the story drag.

So I guess I need to decide how important it is for the plot thread that continues from “Pursuit of Power” into this book to be the main plot. But if it’s not, then the climax is not actually related to the main plot…which I’m sure is a literary no-no.

Today’s post is probably more rambly and confusing than normal. That’s because I’m so confused.
