“Initiation” becomes “Going Greek” and the rewrite begins… again

I’ve been struggling with “Initiation” a bit, and after some great brainstorms from Kris I was truly stuck. As I tend to do, I merely let it roll around in my head while doing other stuff and wait for something to snap into place. In the meanwhile I decided I’d just continue my current rewrite just to get somewhere, because nothing says you can’t just write out every possible direction and pick one afterward. Writing is a Choose Your Own Adventure where you can look ahead to the outcomes and then pick the right one ;)

So on the way home from a friend’s birthday party last night I heard “The Animal” by Disturbed on the radio and just listening to that with one part of my brain and turning things over with another I figured out how to refigure the plot in a way that’s satisfying to me and I think will work.

I just started this morning and have a little over 1000 words written so far. I can’t say it’s gold but it’s a start, and if I can keep going on this tack without having to scramble it around again I’d say that’s a success.

Also, I’ve changed the title to “Going Greek” at Kris’s suggestion because I wasn’t liking “Initiation” and it is about both Maenad and a sorority.

  1. Indeed, the new title sounds better, perhaps due to the fact that it contains an alliteration. Good luck !
