Such a Mess

At this point I’m wed to finishing this novel, but I’m worried it’s gonna take years.  I’ve been working on it for years, off and on, and the tangled narrative clearly demonstrates this.  I’m trying to be patient with myself, non-judgemental, but I am honestly intimidated.  This thing is a mess.  There’s uneven voice, pacing, inconsistencies borne of it’s prolonged creation.  I don’t know where everyone is, and at this point, I need to know where they are, even if they are off-screen.  I started this adventure pantsing it, and now I’ve got a lot of loose threads to either cut loose, or incorporate into the weave at the end of the story.  It’s probably going to take months just to get caught up in Aeon Timeline.  Then the fun part – working on the notebook full of fixes and to do’s I’ve begun.
