I’ll be damned. I’ve been holding back in my writing and didn’t even realize it. I’ve been showing a large amount of restraint. Was it self-sabotage? I don’t know, but I see now that a large part of my personality was being held back from the page. With that in mind, I’m planning a major overhaul of the novel that I have out there now. I’m going to remove the POV of another character (and maybe save that material for another novel), put it into first-person POV for the main character, and incorporate much of the material that I had planned for the second book into the first book. This might mean it’s only two books, but I think the lead novel will be much stronger for it.
