Suggestions (or fixing the messy bits)

I’m at a place in my novel that is quite messy plot-wise. Certain events take place without adequate justification. Characters disappear only to magically reappear in a later scene without explanation. So where were they during the action? Much fixing is needed.

Talking with my daughter yesterday gave me a possible solution for one problem. Her suggestion gives an interesting sub-plot with great potential.

Now if I can just keep my characters from farting off and doing their own thing. After all, some of them actually have roles to play in the book. If they don’t stop it, they might find their jobs replaced by others much more competent.
