Complicating It Up

Haven't had a chance to write this week with all that's been going on, but of course, there's much mental plotting going on. The annoying thing is that I've had the next section of Transformative Variations pretty much nailed down for the last two odd years, but chatty characters are chatty, and the next thing i know, it's on its ear and what I've come up with now, though essentially the same things happen, is going to be a lot harder to write. It's definitely more show and less tell this way, which is a good thing. But it also means writing interconnected scenes that cut into each other, so I need to keep track of passage of time. So if scene one is Charlotte at Stark Industries mid morning, the next scene is around the same time, but back in SLO at the saloon with Methos and Joe where something happens that connects with what will be in the next scene at SI. And Ezra now needs to be in New York, or someplace where he's far enough away he can't actually help. Then he needs to come back since he's supposed to be doing the photo shoot on the new SI division. Gah! I should just stick with the original version, but if I can pull this off satisfactorily, I think it will be much better. Maybe I need a small outline to plot time and what needs to happen before the next scene starts.
