a compendium of musings and rants from Alison Beightol, who is old enough to know better.

so I am working on my manuscript without the supervision of super editor. it's like riding a bike without training wheels. I think I have just about accomplished everything on her checkedy check list. I seem to have saved the hardest part for last. trying to explain why my MC loves another character. I'm stuck and my response to her of well he just does didn't fly well with her. she then told me that it wasn't believable because we didn't know very much about her. like in life, sometimes it's hard to pin down why we love who we love. we just know we do. I think that is what my MC feels. instead of fleshing out why they love each other the way they do, I have added more stuff unrelated to that. so much for writing without the supervision. let's face it, sometimes I just need hand holding.
