If I’d done it right the first time

After the fun of the Friday night story, I’m back to the slog of novel revisions. Finally decided that the thing that I’ve been worried about really doesn’t work, and that I’m going to have to rewrite a fair bit, including the climax, to make it work. Not amused, but also not surprised.

I’ve had lots of help to keep me going.

I’d hoped to get a lot of revising done this weekend, but what with one thing and another I’ve only made it through three chapters, and they were some of the most polished ones. This may take a while…

    “Writing” is not putting words on paper. Any moron can do that. I can do that. “Writing” is using words to create, for someone else, a picture of what’s in your mind. Sometimes that means going back and revising. Sometimes that means taking words off of paper.

    Stringing words together is easy. “Writing” is much harder. From what I’ve seen, you do writing. Do not lament false steps, for they teach us which way not to go.
