It seems in the writing I'm doing at the moment that small decisions about the direction have big implications for the flow and order of my arguments. I think this may be quite common in writing of this kind, but I do wonder from time to time whether a past version, long saved over, was perhaps better than the one I am currently crafting. I think and think and think and then my brain goes TWANG! and I wonder what I was trying to resolve anyway.
I would very much like the piece to fit into a four part format, but the centre is heavy and oozing like a ripe brie*, and containing it is proving to be a challenge. Is it too florid, or if the development necessary to tell the full story? Splitting it will not work, of that I am sure. I'm working in some images too, just to show the toys I'm talking about.
Wow, I'm really goinjg a bit crazy. there's no solution but to get feedback and move on accordingly. I could see a piece, even this small, not ever being completed. Shaped and re-shaped into infinity, a Japanese gardener raking sand into beautiful designs for the sheer mediation and enjoyment of it. Time to make the final decisions and at least get some guidance.
*Must stop with the analogies. It's genuinely how I think, but god...
