Sprawl

social-networkThe new book has begun to scare me recently with the number of new characters it continues to spawn.  Linus, Lun-Yi, Fatboy, Memphis, Gary, Madeline, Janice, Filip, Pintar, David, Calliope…the list goes on.

But I can’t figure out how to cut any of them and it’s not like they all have massive roles.  They’re kind of the undercurrent that the main characters are all floating along.  So then I get a little less worried.

Yet, that is a lot and the plot is rather involved and I’m folding a lot of different locales and social groups into the story and…well it’s starting to feel like I’m writing the freaking Godfather saga with zombies.

Just so you know.

Also I kind of want to just hurry up and finish this thing.
