. . . I woke up on Thursday with An Idea. But that was OK — the Idea was limited to one section of the novel, and it wouldn’t require much rejiggering.
Then today I squinted at the novel from another angle, and that resulted in Another Idea. This one would involve changing the motivation of a major character, with consequences through the story.
I think I need to follow up on both of these ideas.
But what will happen when I actually read through my draft?
John Steinbeck famously wrote The Grapes of Wrath in a few months. Where did I go wrong?
