After a year of see-sawing back and forth about whether I should keep or delete four chapters in Once Upon a Wager (which has kept the story in limbo) I think I’ve finally resolved the problem. I don’t know how I didn’t see it before. It was so simple. So obvious! The resolution allows me to keep all the chapters and opens up the story for the ending I keep seeing. It puts the story right. This means the story is nearly finished. I feel like I’ve stepped out of iron shoes. I’ll soon be dancing!
