It's annoying and infuriating to be in a situation like the one I'm forcing myself to suffer these days. It's a very long story, but I'll make short and say that I started a novel that reached chapter twenty one, which somehow made me know that I needed to rewrite right in the middle of the novel. Realizing this was frustrating, but it needed to be done, because there are some defects in the plot and the storyline that were so horrible and changed the chain of events I wished my novel to take. But never mind that, because now I put a new storyline (Not particularly new, but I know my head from my toe now and I know where the story is going). I changed it in a way that kept the characters and the plot but changed the events to the extent that I needed to start from scratch, meaning CHAPTER ONE! I'm okay with that and I never give up on trying making my novel better, but I'm scared out of my bones from starting again. It's not like I'm writing a new novel, because I already have a lot of chapters that will remain the same, but I don't know if I'm starting it right or that the reader will like it. Any advice? I feel terrible and my protagonist here is blaming me for it. So, help.
