Yes, I see a lot of rewriting in my immediate future. I think I may finally be on top of my plot issues (cue hysterical laughter) but what I have now uncovered is that my heroine is coming across as weak. Poor thing.
We're trying to steer clear of martyrdom here (see, proof that I can read my rejection letters and learn... or at least pretend to).
I believe the problem is that I had my heroine in love with the hero from the get go and now she's sucking the passion out of my story with her sad little thoughts so I'm going to have to rewrite what I haven't deleted to give her a bit more fire.
So, after my ankle surgery, since I am currently pretending to cleaned and washed in preparation for voluntarily disabling myself for a few days, I will be tell my heroine to grow a backbone. I suspect this will be more in the form of starting from scratch rather than an actual rewritem but a girl can hope.
How are everyone else's characters going?
It's only fair if they're giving you a hard time too...
