If nothing else, I know how this novel opens. I have one scene — the first — that is where I want it to be. Everything else is totally fluid to an absurd level. I don’t know how much of all of this is I still have a lot of learning to do about storytelling and how much of it is I’m too much of a perfectionist.
Regardless, I’ve kind of given myself a half-deadline of early next week to kind of get things locked down one way or another.
