There’s a battle in my brain. Story ideas are throwing spitballs, shouting obscenities, and scratching their chins with their middle fingers at each other. It’s quite rude.
But the one that has my attention now is my first novel called Pause. Maybe because it’s been sitting quietly in a drawer for so long, acting like an angelic first novel. It’s total crap, though, and I can’t believe I queried it. Yet underneath the meandering plot, the crybaby main character, and way too much internal dialog, there are some real tense moments and several plot twists. I still like the story.
So, I’m rewriting it.
Does that mean I’m not going to write every other story idea in my head? No. What Gifts She Carried and everything else will still be written.
Does that mean I’ll like Pause after I’ve rewritten it? It kind of depends on my critique partners. If they give me permission to like it, then yes, I’ll like it. 😉 (I’ll post a few chapters to Critique Circle soon).
