I don't like any of what I've written. No, I'm talking about the prose. I'm talking about how I'm approaching my story. There are other avenues of exploration . . . other ways I can tell it . . . other angles that are working themselves out in my head, and I think these avenues are much, much better ways of exploring what I want to explore.
So, while I'm not abandoning the novel, I "think" I'm changing my approach. It's really late, and I'm exhausted, but I'm going to freewrite and rework this entire thing.
