As mentioned in previous posts, the storyline has drifted way off in a different direction from where it started. So my plan is to make this either a serial or two separate novels. It could even evolve into more than two. Time will tell.
The problem, if it is one, is that a subplot has developed into a major storyline. That's what happens, at least with me, when characters grow and develop.
That being said, my other novels contain elements that could be developed into another novel. I've often been asked if I plan to do sequels to particular novels. That's always a possibility although I prefer to break ground with new stories.
With this manuscript, I plan to go back to the beginning and start the edit and rewrite while continuing to work on the second storyline.
Of course, I don't know how all this will end. I may have two novels or perhaps scrap one or both of the stories if I'm not satisfied with the end result(s).
You might even say it's the beginning of the end or the end of the beginning or new beginnings. Whatever, I'm looking forward to reaching the end.
Until the next time...
