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.
