Sorry for the lack of updates this week.
I’m in the middle of revision woes right now. I’m revising. And I’m scrapping. And I’m reconsidering. I teeter back and forth. Start over from scratch. Revise what’s there. Start over. Back and forth and back again.
This manuscript is proving especially troublesome for some reason.
As I revise I consider what every scene is contributing. And in doing so, I begin to question everything about the manuscript. I wonder whether it’s worth even trying to save. That’s when thoughts of starting over from scratch come into my head and roost. I try to shoo them out and sit down to revise what I’ve already written but then I despair.
And then an idea hits me and I celebrate for a few moments thinking it’s the answer to all the problems with my revision woes. Then the woes come home to roost again.
At the moment, I’m re-outlining the entire Heirs of the Seven Realms trilogy. I’m not terribly thrilled with it but then by turns I do like the new outline a little more than what was there before. Sigh. The battles continue.
