Default Re: books too complex for their own good?

This is why I strongly suspect some of DQ's biggest problems aren't so much problems as that Anne did a MASSIVE rewrite from her original draft. (I wish there were some way to see what it looked like originally but apparently when her agent sent it back with "burn it" written on it, she took it literally.) On what I'm praying is the final draft of my 'pet project' novel I basically TOTALLY redid the scenario and I'm having to remind myself at times things I had planned or written into backstory haven't happened yet in this version. (Pity Shalyn, my poor sounding board, who listens and comments on things in chat as I pick at this. I swear, this is the LAST DRAFT.)
