Over-Plot

Curse Of The Over-Plot


Hi Everyone!!

I hope you’re having a fabulous week ;o) I also hope you enjoyed the interview with the awesome, newly-agented author, Brooklyn Ann!

Wha? You missed it? It’s okay, I just happen to have the link right Here!

So.

I’ve come across something I may have a problem with… it’s in my current WIP. Wanna know what? You may already know… *cough* the title of the post…
I believe I’m on the verge of over-plotting my story. Why’s that? You may ask. Isn’t plotting a good thing?

It is. But.

If you’ve been revising your WIP for a few months, as I’ve been, you begin to add in twists and turns, love triangles, Back to the Future and Scooby Doo references… oh, just me? Some of these ideas will make my WIP fantastic. Some… I’m afraid are going to make it confusing and scattered. So. Here’s my dilemma.
Which twists/triangles/surprises do I keep? It’s not clear to me at this point, which would make it great and which would make it like that picture up there.
I have to ask…. do you have this problem? What was your solution? Am I being a paranoid freak? Have I been looking at my WIP too long? YES!
Probably all of the above! LOL
Have a wonderful rest of the week ;o)
Rock on!
