#WordCount What do you do when you’ve discovered a major plot flaw 2/3 into your current WIP?

My WIP is different than any other story I’ve written.

The main conflict is not good guy vs bad guy. It’s the good guy vs. . . herself.

 

I like the story. I like the characters. And I think the whole thing is worth telling . . . but probably, most definitely, not the way I’m doing it.

When I started writing during NaNoWriMo I was dealing with the internal struggles quite well, but now that I’m close to finishing the whole plot has just gotten . . . blah, and the conflict has basically turned into “what fuckin’ conflict?”.

So what do you do when you’re 2/3 finished with your WIP and suddenly realize it has one big flaw that will mean major rewriting. . .

 

You keep writing.

You write until it’s finished because you can’t edit a story that’s still in your head.

Sigh.
