Pivot Point

As the hard deadline for “Blue” approaches faster than I’d like, I did the unthinkable yesterday and added a crucial and totally unnecessary scene to its plot. Worse yet, the scene is now the pivot point of the whole novella.

My rationale? While a ballerina can certainly pirouette on the balls of her feet, it is infinitely more ‘must-see’ for her to do so on the tip of her toes. “Blue” now pirouettes on one singular scene, not a messy bundle of them.

Bottom line: It’s never too late to tinker.

Until tomorrow…
