so as i was about 900 words into my story i realized i didn’t like it.
i liked the idea, i liked how i was writing it, i just didn’t like it.
so i’m starting over. it may not have as many civil war references, or any (for those wondering, i was originally writing about the second battle of bull run). but the concept is going to be the same.
i’m pretty sure once i take out any historical aspects of this story and just sort of write it as something that is on its own, it’ll work a lot better. we’ll see how tonight goes. i may return to my original idea and just finish it off.
