...that you write a second novel based on your original idea? I have a high fantasy that I'm working on. But when I first started writing it, it was kind of a sci-fi, urban fantasy story, with "aliens" and a different planet. But I didn't have the skill then to really make it work, so I changed it to strictly an urban fantasy. But then after some time, it just made more sense to make it strictly fantasy. But now that I've developed my skill as a writer, I really want to go back and rework the sci-fi/fantasy aspect. Maybe not as a novel, but a novella or short story would work. Has this ever happened to anyone else? Do you avoid doing this? I know that sometimes the story grows for the better and going back to a plot that may or may not work could end in disaster.. But I feel I had something to tell with that story and am not quite ready to give up on it. Anyone else?
