Yesterday I discovered one scene I’d written was on a Friday and another on a Sunday. The second one needed to be on a weekday – people at work, college open, etc – but if I moved it to a Monday there wasn’t enough action in the intervening period. It’s a crime novel and we can’t just allow our hero to let the trail go cold whilst he takes the weekend off. I think I can fix it but am wondering how to best sort out this type of problem at the plotting stage. Thoughts welcome.
