Putting that handbook together was so much fun. (More difficult was figuring out how to publish it, but through a painful process, I managed to make graphics out of the page spreads.) But now, I am back to wrestling with 1) my ongoing fic, and 2) my ongoing non-fic project.

I decided the fic needed restructuring because even in fiction, there should be some underlying reality... Also, I thought I should change one of my POV characters. So I started to revise it. The first few chapters were all right, but now I've hit the point where the new POV character has perspective (and attitudes) that the former POV character didn't (this is kind of why I dropped the former POV character -- she wasn't in the thick of things and ended up observing from outside). As a result, I'm not rewriting, but writing everything for the new POV character. (Not to mention that the updating for reality has resulted in me having to rewrite lots of things anyway.) It's fun, though. And I wish I had more time to play with it this week, but there is Real Paying Work to be done and that takes priority.

On the non-fic front, I'm debating whether to restructure my novel-in-progress a bit, as well. (I am queen of "It's not quite right, BURN IT and rebuild from the ashes.") In this case, a pair of secondary characters and their kids sort of stepped in and though their story is interesting, it's kind of derailed the forward momentum of the main plot. Time to restructure... Maybe if they are nice I will give them their own book, although they are already living their happily ever after.

Are there books set in the happily ever after? A friend and I discussed this at length once -- it's obvious that there must be some conflict, but having a couple unite against the conflict rather than being the source of the conflict seems to be key. Otherwise it's a marital squabble and who wants to read about those?
