Focus

I've managed to patch myself up enough to get past the initial shock of cutting a huge chunk from my wip. Since doing that, the creative juices are flowing. I had one moment when my imagination started to jut off in another direction. I reined it in, pointed to my original idea, and said, focus. I should have done this earlier.

Going off on a tempting tangent is so easy to do! If they didn't so often lead to dead ends, it would be fun...sigh.
Glad the snip (15k? OMG) worked. It sure took some courage!

Hi Jen!
Thanks. It was either major amputation or start over from scratch. I was 73k in, I couldn't start over. Although difficult, it sure has things moving along now.
