Decisions

Ack! It’s been over two weeks since I posted. Sorry!

I’ve been spending much of that time dithering. I had an idea for one of the main secondary (nothing like an oxymoron) characters in the book, but as the storyline progressed, it changed. Instead of being upright citizen of the world, they would be devious, sneaky, and advancing their own devious and sneaky agendas. However, the character is refusing to be anything of the sort, and so I have three choices: follow the flow and see where it goes, make the character be sneaky and devious whether they want to be or not, or bring in another character who’ll have no qualms on the sneaky and devious part.

Decisions, decisions.

I’ll probably go with the first choice. I’m curious to see how it’ll pan out with them being upright citizen and all, but that means that I don’t know what’ll happen next (or know even less than I know now), so it might lead to a dead end. If that happens, I’ll have to backtrack and rewrite, which is a big pain the keister. And that’s why I’ve been dithering.

Did that even make sense?

Ah well. Back to work. Time to make a decision and act on it.
