Which is good. There's nothing worse that the vague sense of unease that comes with knowing it's not right, but being unable to figure out quite what it is.
The bad part is, I now need to rewrite about seven chapters to make them work. They're not going to be drastic, plot altering changes, but I need to make my character arc more satisfying. I'm confident I can do it, and reasonably quickly, but it's still a bit of a kick in the pants when I thought I was finished with this book and moving on to a new one.
So that's what I'll be doing over the next week or two. Things haven't been going all that well on the new book anyway, and I'm hoping working on this one again might bring me the inspiration and passion I need to kickstart the next project.
Hw do you feel about major changes when you thought you were done?
