I didn't work on my YA novel for a few weeks. But just because I wasn't actively working on my novel, it didn't mean I wasn't thinking about my story. I'm revising a part of my story where a certain twist I threw into the story is rather predictable. So I've been brainstorming how to approach this plot point from different angles. I finally figured out a solution.
While I'm excited that I found an alternate route to telling my story, the insecure writer inside me wonders when my story will ever see the light at the end of the tunnel with all my backtracking. But the optimist in me asks, how many opportunities do we have in life to undo a past action? Revising my fiction could be the closest I'd ever come to time travel.
How do you revise? What other ways are there to time travel?
