In case you’re wondering, I’m aware that this doesn’t start with C. 😉 The A to Z Challenge post will go live at 1:30 p.m. Central African time.
So. Back to my insecurities.
In case you don’t know, the Insecure Writers’ Support Group is a monthly bloghop where writers get together to share insecurities and encouragement.
This month, I have a serious insecurity.
See… Doorways was accepted for publishing on the condition that I split it into two novels. Great opportunity because I basically have two books in the series done.
Not so great in that it means that I had to take an ax to the story I love.
BUT! There was a point in the book, almost exactly halfway into the story, that acts sort of like a natural break. So that was easy. The difficult part came in when I actually have to separate Doorways not into two halves, but into two stories.
Because now I have to take a story that worked (and worked well, even if I say so myself) and add to it.
Suddenly, the word “revision” sounds ominous…
Anyone else have to split one story into two?
