My Plot Got A Bit Muddy

Ok, so not a whole lot of writing done today. However, I did sort out a big event in my novel. With much scribbling I cut six scenes down to four, with just a little bit of revision it will hopefully become far more cohesive. These few scenes take my protagonist away from her home and into the larger society. Because things are very much happening to her in this part I managed to let her agency slip away, the scenes feel loose and disorganised. Too many side characters take up the space and push out my protagonists voice.

Next I will condense these scenes and write them with my main characters goals and aims in mind. Even though she has little agency in where she is, she can still work the situation to her advantage.

Today I wrote 202 words
