So, Grandfather Paradox is currently at 1500 words. I think this is a bit short, and I think it’s short because I’m not breaking things enough. Things need to be broken in order to have things to fix during the course of the story. So, clearly I need to break more things and be meaner to my poor characters. Which is strange, because in light of spoiler I think I’m being plenty mean to them already! but they’re succeeding at things too easily and must be vexed, circumvented, and otherwise treated meanly.
*wracks brain for cruel and unusual things to do to my story*
