rambling through

A bildungsroman is more rambling and less plot driven than most stories, because the inner journey is the important thing.

Mine is taking advantage of that to ramble off into odd and eccentric corners -- already added one arc with thousands of words that I hadn't even realized would be there -- and now she and her classmates are studying away and trying to figure out their project to complete their course of study.

Now feeding it back into her inner journey is another thing. Also giving it some form as an external plot.
