“Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world. _ Albert Einstein
I finally got past the first arc in my book and all of a sudden a creative epiphany struck.
WHAT IF….My story is solid and the work I’ve put in thus far is clearly on the right track, but imagination struck. What if my idea of a slight plot change would work better? Chapter would have to be changed!!!!
CURRENT PLOT…Child is kidnapped and murdered by someone who used to live in the town. A man who is riddled with a mental disease.
NEW PLOT TWIST….The single mother of this rebellious child has had enough and comes to her wits end and talks to the elders of the town. The elders arrange for her to be kidnapped and somewhat scared straight..ALL TO BE FIGURED OUT THROUGH MORE THOUGHT BY ME… Unknowingly, the child is killed and her murder now hangs on the mother and the elders. WILL….the sheriff link all of the events of the past in the town and the kidnapping/murder of this child together, unraveling the towns secrets and possibly his own?
Not quite sure which path to travel. DO I..unravel both scenarios, or leave the new idea for a possible new book?
