Personal present — finishing novel by Christmas
Finishing my novel this year — I am; however, I have just decided it needed a prologue about when the heroine was 9 years old; then start the book when she’s 29, so I’m starting over, sort of.
It’s not as foolish as it sounds. I was getting pretty far into the book and kept having flashbacks to this time in her life, so I’ve decided a prologue would clear all that up. Therefore, I’ve done a three page prologue — now I have to go back and take out all the flashbacks, or at least the majority of them.
