Editing to add white space caused an unwanted shift in tone. I often use levity, but my first chapter needs heavier gravitas than many other chapters. The change in tone surprised me. A few added words and some rephrasing led to, “Timber!”

Both images come from Wikipedia The first has this description: Center of pressure in relation to center of gravity while off-balance. The image takes a more humorous tone when attached to my tale involving a fertility cult. The second image shows how earth warps space-time. My novel does some warping of its own. Dreamtime acts as warp drive for my main character, as he needs to make big jumps in time and place.
