I really can't go on...

To continue Draft 4 would be a drastic waste of time and energy, as the plot has changed, a major cast member has been cut and half the other characters have undergone a massive overhaul. To keep writing Version 4 (for it's not just a new draft, but a new version) would be silly.

And so, I declare the final 10 000 NaNo words shall be Version 5.

Siral... sorry mate... you're cut. I might find a way to put you back in as an extra, as you fulfill several minor functions. But as a major character... you cause more problems than you solve. You're cut.

This, I should note, marks the first cuttage of a major character, actually a member of Team Gwynnie.

Au revoir, Siral. Your eternal grumpiness and hating of everything and everyone will be sorely missed.

Bring on Questers 5.1! (as much of it as possible in the forty minutes between now and Futurama)

I had this sudden flash-foward to Kayt at eighty, sitting around telling us how she's srapped draft 1,274 and is starting on a new one.

Kayt-at-80: Oh, and Gwynnie? You're cut.

So, are you just in a cutting spree or do you do this all the time? Do you have to start with stories that have WAY too much in them, just so you can fulfill your cutting needs?

:P
