Manuscript Purgatory
I know writers who have manuscript graveyards located under their beds or set to rest in heavy filing cabinets. These manuscripts run out of steam, need heavy revision, or are unworkable for a number of reasons. In short, there are no plans to work on them in the present.

I have no such graveyard located in my house.

Instead, I send these manuscripts to purgatory. In short, this purgatory is a place of temporary suffering or punishment - and exactly what they deserve. They have not gone to die, but they must atone for their problems and work out their issues before they can resurrect to my working files once more.

While I work on my All In manuscript, I have decided to send the other WIP to that hellish zone of purgatory. After some initial feedback, changes, and more feedback, it is losing its focus and floundering. Heavy re-writes will be in order, and until they make themselves known, in purgatory it will remain.

Thankfully, purgatory is just an uncomfortable place of suffering - not death. I fully plan to tell this story but not until all it is washed of all its sins.
