And therein lies the rub.
I have to write this first book first. It has to stand alone while still leaving a few threads dangling free - just in case this sucker gets picked up by an agent and then gets a contract. (If If If) In my first run through of DLN, I left too much out there for the subsequent stories to nibble off. So much that the story itself wasn't doing what I needed it to do. Stand alone.
Now I'm rewriting the whole damn thing pretty much, and I'm left wondering whether I'm walking that thin line well enough. How much information is too much? Am I leaving too much out?
Or am I just going through my regularly scheduled bout of self-doubt? (aka The Bitch is Back) I tell ya. This writing thing can be tough.
:shrug: Tough or not, there's still nothing I'd rather do.
