So, sometimes a writer has to tighten her belt, er, plot. Did I mention my unique talent for making a short story very, very long? Turns out that’s something to rein in to create a great story.
After research, thought, and analysis, I’ve tightened up the plot for Salvage’s episode 1.
So, after nailing down the plot, subplots (including combining 2 plot threads), all key scenes, and some details about the key scenes, I’ve gone back to the draft of episode 1 to rearrange some scenes and tweak the writing a bit. I also know have a writing-Salvage crib sheet to use as I tweak these scenes and write new ones. The result so far seems to be a more balanced and nuanced story. And the work is flowing really well.
Stay tuned for details.
