Editing The Dream - Part Four

I really don't have much to say at the moment. This is just more of a quick vent because I'm really frustrated with the second edit. It was going well bu I'm fearful that the last quarter of the story is running off the rails a little. I am struggling with the "reuniting" of the two lovers - one of whom has been reinarnated into the body of someone else. I am trying to make it a really lovely and tender piece of writing but it seems to clunk along and I find myself consistently thinking that this all sounds like bullshit. It culminates in a significant plot reveal that has huge ramifications for the two lovers but I am fearful that it doesn't sound convincing either. I mean I am dealing with reincarnation as a subtext so a certain amount of disbelief has to be suspended anyway. But when you're endeavouring to anchor your story in a fairly real setting, making it sound convincing becomes extremely important.

Am I making any sense?

Probably not, but I know what I mean...

I'll talk to you later.
