I’m happy to be back revising SoR. Revising, I think, is often where the real work of writing novels is. This is the point where I have to put my thinking cap on, where I have to confront plot issues and grapple with characters. I can’t blow off story problems with a note to come back and fix it later.
Because late is now.
Right Brain has rallied splendidly around the war-banner. Right Brain was not thrilled about being pulled away from the Shiny New Idea of the Week to go do hard stuff. But it had to come around and give me some cool things to work with–some aha! things are coming together moments–or risk being bored to tears.
Left Brain is happy because the backlog is being cleared off the mental Inbox. It’s happy because there is measurable progress. Lo:
SoR Part I Revision: 82 out of 132 pages–DONE.
I know at least a couple of people reading this are also revising novels. How’s it going?
