My work in progress is a YA Historical Adventure, requiring abundant research notes, maps, and an accurate timeline for the plot. My head was about to explode.
It reminds me of laundry day when my three, close in age, young daughters, wore the little white socks with the lace at the top. I had to spread them out and sort them by size.
Life gets jumbled that way at times, and it requires a dump and sort with a step back to get the bigger picture.
