The Winged Child - round two...
Eleven chapters in on rewriting the first draft of my current novel project, The Winged Child. The plan for this round was to obliviate Alice Firehand, a minor character who shows up late and steals some action from the main protagonist. Contrary to the author's intent and expectation, Alice has picked up some pages and threatens to be the last character standing at the end of the novel.
It wouldn't be the first time a bit character stole my story. Obviously, there's a lot more to this tale than I've yet been told.
