Superfluous characters beware!

I can't help thinking of Homer Simpson.

"You're cut! You're cut. Oh, you are so cut. You, you and you. You're all cut." "Now, I couldn't cut everyone I wanted to..."

I have eliminated the major villain of the first two books of Questers. I had the whim yesterday and then told myself it couldn't be done without making major changes to a lot of characters and plot elements. The trouble is that while Itrisa herself was Generic Evil Woman #4, she was almost the first thing I created eight years ago. So, a whole lot of important, uncuttable things are tied to her.

But she is so cut.

Sophie and I talked it through, and Itrisa is gone. This has caused some pretty major upheaval for everyone else.

Ah well, I'm sure they shall get over it. Once I've rearranged their lives and figured out what's GOING ON!!!

In other news, I seem to have lost my important collection of Izzy Darkmoor's poems in the move. But, since Izzy is a completely different person now, I guess she'll need new depressing poetry anyway.

Still, the draft is going well. Nearly 10 000 words, and two chapters complete.

Tommorrow, I'm going to Sydney. Thursday morning I have to get the PET scan, and then that arvo I'll be going home again.

That's all really.

So... why does Gwynnie go questing? If there's no Itrisa to kill her best friend?

Wouldn't you like to know?


Actually, it's fairly simple. I replaced Itrisa with a different evil oppressive regime. But this one is just more interesting.

It does however, create problems with the great Izzy Darkmoor, Itrisa's daughter. It took me eight years to develop a life and death for that girl and I just had to create a new one overnight.

*laughs* that's exactly what you sounded like when we spoke about it.

"she is cut. She is soooooo cut."
