In a sudden reversal of a recent, strongly-believed removal of words from my current novel, I now find myself on the verge of re-inserting them…
And, no, this isn’t (merely) to bump the word count, but more because another character just reminded me of something that I require from the mini-story-thread created within those three previously removed scenes.
They were supposed to be developing a major minor plot point, but because I keep VERY few notes on my developing story –preferring to let everything simply stew in my head, for good or bad– I had let this slip my mind.
It was only when this other character passes by a place where the other thread was due to affect his life that I recalled the old “plan”, and knew that without those three scenes the eureka moment he is due to undergo would feel VERY fake.
And so they are back, albeit with a tweak and a twist. 🙂
Word count will be updated after said tweak and today’s new words are found.
