Reconstructing Pirouette.

I’ve been working feverishly on Pirouette, and managed to plot about 1/3 of the Rewrite before I hit a wall. 

There were some failings in my plot –specifically, the villian’s motivations and conflict.  Yeah.  Trust me, you can miss something like this.  Hell, I missed it for the whole 400k manuscript!  Well, actually it was okay — just a Big Fat Cliche.  Which is death.

So what does the Weaver do?  She weaves.  A lot.  I sat down and went over the conflicts and my own goals for the book and re-did alot of things.  No more love/attraction for the sake of it.  No, no, no.  Must have a Really Good Reason for it –note the capitals –or else it goes bye-bye.

So that part went.  I’m also considering redoing the social structure of my vampires.  Not the hierarchy because I love that, but just….making some changes. 

Mythology — redone.  Again.  I like this one better.  For one, it gives my vamps and Fae an actual common source and legend; two, it satisfies my need for balance; and three, it provides –at least as far as I can see — motivation for the current wars.  Yes, that’s a plural.  There are 2 wars in this book. 

I’m not sure how any of this is going to fly, as I have few people to toss ideas around with.  I personally think it borders on near-brilliance, but I have thought that before, only to have that stomped on (it’s okay, it’s all part of the deal). 

I would love to say more about this, but I am very paranoid when I’m in the beginning stages of a project.  I’m afraid that if I say too much, it will just burst into a million pieces.  Or I’ll get plagerized. 😦    Yeah, it’s a cruel world out there, and frankly, I have put too much work into this project to see it copied.  Or bastardized.  Or somesuch thing.

But.  I think this is it for the main changes, anyways.  *sighs in relief*

Off to drool over watch House.  He’s my hero.  😉
