I just realized yesterday that my character's 3rd love interest who was supposed to be minor has become a major player and my story is better without the 2nd love interest. My story is going to have to be revamped. :o( I'm glad I had this revelation on day 5 instead of later on like day 20.
This means the majority of my detailed outline of over 10,000 words has to be thrown out. (hangs head)
The 2nd love interest will be used for a different book. Good news is that I have half the outline done for that. (thumbs up)
Now, with the 2nd character gone, I have an ending for my book. Unless the story takes another turn...
