… today was a very productive day. I didn’t have very much internet time, but I guess that’s why it was productive.
I did end up consigning one character to the lonely limbo of my memory when I cut her completely from the book. Too bad. I liked her very much.
I also ended up with a net loss in words, despite adding a couple short scenes. Revising the sequence without the character sped things along quite a bit, although I personally still feel her loss.
The book will be better for it–simpler and more unified.
