So... I am in the throws of rewrites for my book KRASATA, a Memoir of Motherhood, Down syndrome and Unexpected Beauty.
Writing is going well. I am glad that I got help from an editor before rewrites. Worth every penny!
The conundrum? Well, I am still a few chapters away from finishing and the word count is already over 68,000 words. KRASATA is getting a tad long at this rate and I can't decide if I should include both Evie's adoption and Polly's stroke at the end.
Include both, and have a looooong memoir, place the adoption where it fits chronologically and end with Polly's surgeries.
Cut out Polly's stroke and surgeries. Then the story would start in Ukraine with Polly's birth and end in Ukraine with Evie's adoption?
Opinions, PLEASE! I beg of you. I'm stuck!!
