Where I am in the writing process: I am currently un-published with the dream of one day becoming published. I started writing in 2008. I've written and re-written one full novel. I'm currently working through re-write number 3 of said novel.
My current problem(s): I had a pretty good week. I got through about 20 pages in my re-write/edit. But I'm noticing that as I've been going along I have been going crazy with the delete button. I mean I have all these irrelevant conversations and scenes and added detail. What was I thinking? Which brings me to this week's question...
This week's question: Overcomplicating vs. Undercomplicating. I'm afraid sub-plots in my novel are going to take the main focus. How much is too much?
