2/19/07 — Oh boy, what a writing day! There I was working away, thinking I knew what was going to happen at a critical point in the plot, and suddenly I realized that I had it wrong. STORM MOUNTAIN would be much stronger if I went another way. At first I resisted the notion, but finally gave in and went for it. No surprise, my intuition was right. It IS stronger this way.
Sigh. Now I’m going to have to go back and rethink the entire story. Which means even more rewriting than usual. But it will be worth it, I’m sure. Of course I was sure I was on the right track yesterday, too. Who knows what tomorrow will bring. Sound confusing? Ah, the writer’s life!
