To write a synopsis.
But also to think.
Salt Novel has a lot of moving parts AND a lot of interchangeable parts. I have entire drafts where different characters fill completely separate roles depending on the draft. It’s maybe time to make some decisions.
That said, I’ve BEEN praying about these choices and so have my friends. I think I (mostly) know what I need to do.
Does that surprise you at all? It’s so easy to read a novel and assume the characters and storyline were always well established. For me, HUGE changes occur from the earliest explorations. It doesn’t feel like a waste of time to chase ideas that never come to fruition. It’s all part of my journey toward what is the nugget of truth in this fictional story.
Here I go . . . Again . . .
