So, I'm part way through my current WIP - which for some reason has insisted on being written in disjointed pieces - never in order from start to finish. But I realised today that the focus of the story has become more about the MC's back story rather than...things actually happening - flashbacks and her dealing with them. Which is NOT where I really wanted to go with the story as I think it's likely to be boring....I'm enjoying the process of writing it, and working through it, but...I just think that if I had being reading if from someone else....ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ... I also realised - I started with an idea, a focus for the MC and a bit of a back story....rather than a plot...she's achieved the focus, but her backstory (which did have a lot to do with the focus) has decided that it fits in just after it by her issues getting worse.... I'm sorely tempted to delete whole parts of what I have...but then am worried I'll regret it as well. Maybe, yet again, it will merely be a story that I wrote for me, to only be read for me - which also means my time away from my wife was...kinda wasted....as much of it was written after she'd gone to sleep! ANyone else had the same issues?
