I've too'd and fro'd SO MANY TIMES about character #4 in my new novel and her plot it's not true.
And I'm still not sure which plot to go with.
I have plotted one idea in some detail and know it'll be as interesting/enjoyable to write as the plots for characters 1,2 and 3 but I'm not sure how well it fits the rest of the novel and the plots of the other characters. Their plots are reasonably straightforward and quite 'normal' whereas the plot I've got in mind for character #4 is a tiny bit 'out there'. And I'm thinking "Will the reader buy it?" or will they think it's just a bit too outlandish?
And I can't help but wonder what agents will think of it (even though everything I've ever read said you should write the novel you want to write and not think about readers and agents and publishing). But I don't want to spend months (or years) of my life writing a novel that won't get published.
I feel like I'm going round in circles and can't make a decision.
I've got writing fear.
