I am thoroughly entangled in a revision challenge to slim a hefty storyline down by a third, but a rewrite of this magnitude is like asking the Big Bang to reverse so that the universe can be retooled. The options to preserve my meager stock of sanity in this lunatic endeavor are few:
1. Eat chocolate
2. Watch a Pirates of Dark Water marathon!
3. Induce a Thanksgiving turkey tryptophan coma.
4. Homework. Nix that. Did I mention eat chocolate?
But enough cyber-dawdling. Back to the scribbling board and my stubborn characters. If I may purloin a phrase from the Borg, "resistance is futile!"
