I spent months going all the way round Robin Hood’s barn, or something like that, to end up back where I started. That’s an old country saying my country boy husband said to me a long time ago, by the way.
I started to rewrite my novel at least 2 times. I mean totally started over. Then, I realized I was telling one story about the same person but at two different times in her life. I know it sounds ridiculous that I did not see this, but I think I was possibly looking too close?
I stepped back. Took a deep breath. Went back to my first draft, which thankfully still existed.
I am now in the process of incorporating both stories into one. I am doing more research. I am looking for the link to join the two different periods of this characters life. I’m pretty sure I have it.
It’s been a rough few months for me. Thanks for your patience while I’ve been gone. Your taking the time to read my blog means the world to me. If I take off again, I’ll be back.
