Have been in a slump; perhaps I’ve bitten off more than I can chew. The manuscript I am working on has three separate story lines which need to be woven together and tied up in a nice bow at the end.
I’m struggling with which character(s) to drop, who will ultimately be the antagonist. Have also changed the storyline from love story to drama, making a former minor character the protagonist. Yikes! My head is spinning!
I also have questions such as: Can a man in love forgive his sweetheart’s betrayal? Can a soldier suffering from PTSD (‘shell shock’ in WWI’) lose his memory? Can two rivals make peace with their sweetheart’s decision to marry neither of them? Can a man sacrifice his life for a sweetheart who has betrayed him?
Round and round, I go. It certainly keeps the brain cogs turning.
Wish me luck. This story has turned into a real challenge.
By the way I’ll be at Westchester Community College on Wednesday, March 6 at 11:00 am. Power point “Constance de Hauteville and the Italy that Nobody Knows will precede reading and book signing. Books will be available at the author’s price of $15.
Hope to see you there.
