Subtitle: What a Woman Wants.
See, that’s the problem. I have no idea what my main character wants. Somewhere by the end of a story (preferably somewhere near the first line of the story), that should be clear. The whole plot should be about the loss/inability to obtain that desire. That makes sense to me.
And in the middle, attack them with zombies.
As I work on yet another set of revisions, I can’t see it anywhere. I’ve looked under all the words. Made notes to myself. Thrown out options. Literally. My cut file contains as many words as my WIP. And still no clue.
Unless you take the phrase “leave me alone” as her desire. And I can only stand so much whining before I want to send the zombies after her myself.
