I had some great ideas out of the writers group this weekend, but I've decided I've got to (for now) keep going as I'd originally planned. I may still throw in that second storyline. But I'm keeping the ideas that came out of the group in mind for the revision after November. Some of that is just too good to pass up in this story. There seems to be a lot more here than I originally thought.
The last scene I wrote tonight was kind of depressing. Sometimes I get too emotionally involved with the story. But if I back off, I feel like I lose touch. Ugh... Writing relationship novels is tough. :/
