Seeing the big picture

I'm reworking my ending.
I've realized it reads like GROUNDHOG DAY.

Similar things happen over and over.
Diluting the action.

But I've got so many characters and so many plot lines
I'm not sure how to figure it all out.
It's a bit intimidating.

I'd like a hovercraft that allows me a bird's eye view
of everything that happens in those twenty pages.

But I don't have such a thing so I'm going to settle for
printing out those pages
in larger font
and spreading them out on my floor.

Note to self: vacuum up dog/cat hair, first.
