I love Weird Al.
“Several fans, however, were offended or hurt by Al’s use of the word “spastic,” which has been used by many to refer, in a derogatory way, to people with cerebral palsy. Calling the term “ableist,” bloggers and moms decried Weird Al’s use of the term as an insult in the song.” and he then apologized

Specifically, the relative merits of a linear versus a non-linear narrative structure.
I have this story idea, right, and it’s got quite a complicated plot as it is, but the problem is that when I plot it with a typical linear narrative (ie A->B->C->D->E), the resolution at the end seems forced and anticlimactic. The characters’ motivations are more clear, and the plot is wrapped up fairly neatly, but it’s not wrapped up particularly satisfyingly, and I’m unwilling, after much deliberation, to amend the plot point itself as it’s the only logical step for the narrative to take.
However, when I plot around a non-linear narrative (the structure I’m considering involves two parallel narratives; the past and the present, interwoven through different chapters), I have to add a further plot point to the ‘present’ narrative, or the two narratives seem unbalanced and the dramatic tension isn’t ongoing throughout, and the general weight of the narrative sways towards the one narrative strand in a rather undesirable fashion.
The non-linear narrative gives a much better plot resolution, and also adds a further dimension to one of the main character’s motivations, but it does have the effect of adding a potential further 10,000 or so words, which isn’t ideal for reasons relating to the average attention span of both the reader and the author.
My options are thus as follows:
It’s a dilemma and a half. I might need to sit down with a trough of tea.
I think I’m gonna do it
I think I’m going to sign up for the screenwriting course
I think I’m going to be terrified and overwhelmed and outshone and uncomfortable and I think it might be great
