Indigo is not dead

I broke out Indigo again...I made up my mind to finish this project. I feel completely lost with it but I'm just going to take it one chapter at a time until I flesh out the story.  I was reading the first couple of chapters from an earlier version of it and I always loved the initial impulse.  I think I lost my way because I tended to listen to my writing group's suggestions instead of following my own path with the project.  I almost want to scrap the last version and start from the very beginning.  I did re-read some feedback from one of my readers, Ric, because I knew he read/understood the science fiction component which also went away with all the new revisions.  His feedback made me laugh out loud in the middle of a train because it was so on-point with what I was trying to achieve initially. Anyway, this story will be held close to the vest until the novel is in final form.  I just need to remember to trust my instincts and see where the story/the characters take me on this journey. If they are willing to talk to me again.  I may have severed that link but I'll give it another go and see what happens.
I'm also rethinking the title. I was walking around Barnes and Noble at Union Square today. God, I really love being in a bookstore, its really one of my happy places.  Anyway, I was skimming titles and there are too many titles out there with Indigo in the title. I'm sure I can find something else to replace it...I'll do that last, once i'm finished this project.
