Constantly doing these retroactive repairs has now become counterproductive and not conducive to my actually completing this project. At first it seems like a real pain in the ass, but the more I think about it the more optimistic I am about it.More Like This
The basic plot is sound from my perspective. I've improved upon the long term story arc since I started this story. Where it was once a rather hackneyed conspiracy theory/mystery It has morphed into a less grandiose, but somehow more interesting and complex tale of a well-meaning outsider getting wrapped up in a dangerous game of inter-provincial politics. While the original plot was going to take the reader on what amounted to
