It’s Friday, yet again, despite my computer telling me it’s Saturday and I nearly forgot this blog commitment given my busyness.
Editing has been going well if by well means pulling apart chapters, throwing out scenes, giving a minor character a new job with all that implies, and generally inhabiting the dictionary and thesaurus. Half way through the week I began to think I was getting nowhere. But today was productive, resulting in scenes and ideas that make better sense and characters that live with greater fullness. At least that is my hope.
Next week will mean undoubtedly more of the same. But that’s the editing process and, whether it sounds like it or not, for me it is fun.
