So, for the past three weeks I have been banging away at a novel. I was feeling really good about it. Despite life crashing and burning all around me, I think my novel could be really good. It could be so good that now I'm worried I'm going to mess it up. And as I move forward in the story I want to do things that would require some changes to be made earlier in the story. I don't want to just move forward and fix things later. I can't work like that. But I am far from obsessed with editing endlessly. I am obsessed with getting this story right because I freaking love it. I'm at about 20k. Have any of you been where I am? What did you do? Making these changes are big, but maybe the story needs it. I don't know. Rethinking everything about what I've got down so far.
