So it’s been a while since I read Butterfly Effect. I’d been putting it off because I wanted to do a developmental edit so I wanted to forget as many things as I possibly could. But here’s the thing: when I read the first chap I was seriously like ‘oh my God this crap is boring.’
Oh my god. It was a horrible discovery.
May Anne puts it perfectly. My main character, Om thinks a lot. As I wrote, I used to think Om is actually very involved in what happens around him. But I was wrong. So I edited the first chap. Completely threw out one sub chapter. There’s so much exposition that tires me out as I read it as a reader. I’m glad I re read the book.
