Yesterday, I was having a conversation with a friend about writing and for the first time, I explained my novel to her. Well, she made the comment that it might have too much going on, but she wasn’t sure as it wasn’t her genre. However, what she said, confirmed a nagging concern that I’ve had for a while and I went to bed wondering where I could cut. As of this morning I am still no closer to answering that question, but she also loosely quoted a well-known author, “you can fix crap, but you can’t fix a blank page”. Soooo I’m going to keep going and then reassess at the end.
If you’ve been in this situation, what did you do? Or what do you think I should do?
