And start all over again...
Well, not over again, but certainly from somewhere farther back in the process than I wanted to be.
This week is devoted to some seriously deep edits on a novel. I'm five chapters in, and reworking a storyline, tightening it up, making it stronger. I'm ironing out some inconsistancies or vague parts.
Upon the suggestions of my excellent content editor, I'm digging deeper into the story to pull out better motives for the characters, to justify their actions and reactions.
I'm five chapters in and so far, though the edits have been challenging, I'm sure they will make the story better.
But it's going to take lots of tea and rewriting.
