Sigh! So, I had this great idea and tinkered around with my plot this morning. I started the day with a bonehead move. I left my laptop at home. DOH! It was an odd day without email or teh intrawebs. This gave me a chance to pull out my handy, dandy notebook. Fortunately I never travel without.
I noodled about and then had one of those glorious heavenly choir light from above epiphanies. :cue sparklies: This was followed by more brilliance and suddenly I had this awesomesauce plot twist and it worked perfectly...except...except...oh crap. It required my heroine to do something TSTL*.
Dang it. I hate that. It sounds like a good idea at the time but when you look at it under the lights--not so much. Very deflating.
But!!!!! But the first part of my uber wonderful idea? Still greatness.
Now if I can only pull it off! What false steps have you made in your WIPS?
