Slashing with the Two Edged Sword

After much thought and plotting, I think that I’ll be able to merge my newly developed storyline with the already existing storyline by slashing some largely unimportant chapters.  I like this solution, as it is focused and driven and will result in a much stronger book.  I was concerned about the middle of my book anyway, because it seemed to move all over the place in a choppy manner without pulling things together. 

So it just goes to show – never despair, things will all fall into place in the end anyway.  Sometimes.

A Good Solution is a Two-Edged Sword

Now this is interesting.

In working on what my main ‘push’ was going to be for the last 20,000 words of my work in progress, I finally came up with a great idea that will tie everything together.  Trouble is, it’s such a strong theme that I could have written the whole book with it.  Now I’m wondering if I should go back and write it in.

Don’t you just hate that?
