Barry, great read. I can relate. I liked when you share these thoughts,
“I had an idea in mind when I started. The idea evolved and changed as I progressed. This left giant holes in the arc of the story, especially in the first third of the book. The thought of going back and plugging all these gaps feels daunting”.
I get the daunting part. The funny thing is I thought my 40,000 words sucked. Then after a two month break they don’t seem all that bad. At least something to work with.
Thanks for the funny reminders of how we are all in this mess together. Well at least at times it’s a mess for me!
