You know what’s really fun? Realizing that you’ve been killing off the wrong main character for the last fifteen years and that is why the book hasn’t worked yet.
Also, I have to thank new music that I’ve discovered for this epiphany. Check out Les Friction on Spotify if you want to hear what I think is probably the most perfect soundtrack for Shadowfighter so far. (Until it eventually gets made into a movie and they give it its own, of course.)
