It has been crazy-busy around our house the past few days, so writing activity was basically nil.
But even though I got the first three pages done since earlier this week, I noticed something rather important: they’re not what I need.
Since the story revolves around this one character, the way the story’s written now, it focuses on somebody else. Not the way I want it to go.
Imagine BACK TO THE FUTURE starting with scenes about Doc, rather than Marty. Sure, Doc plays an important part of the story, but the story ISN’T ABOUT HIM.
So now it’s back to the drawing board to at least reset the way it starts. It shouldn’t be that hard.
Then I get back to moving forward.
