I’m at that point with my revision of Part II where I just basically hate everything. I’ve outlined what I have. I’ve made lots of rambling notes about what I want to be different. I’m trying to figure out how to merge the two and it’s just AWFUL!! Blarg. I go through this with Every Single Revision, you would think I’d be used to it now, but noooo.
It’s like, I know I’ll reach that point where I’ve got everything figured out and I can start the actual rewriting process, but right now it’s hard to see it. I’m questioning everything: does this scene belong? would this character really behave like that? what is the point of this storyline? how do I develop this naturally? does anything in here make even A LITTLE BIT OF SENSE?? Should I just give up and become a horticulturist???
So anyways. That’s how it’s going.
