I had to step away from this project to think about it. I've had some great insights, but I won't have time to work on them for another week or so.
This is what I'm thinking about: A white board, or something like that, to draft out where each character is emotionally in each scene.
Working on pieces is making me lose sight of the work as a whole. One of my characters is shades of gray slippery, and I let the good far overshadow the bad in the latter half, because I like this character. But that's not right. So the moral ambiguity has to continue.
I can't wait to get my hands, and head, back on this. But first, other projects.
