Story Excavation

My revisions are beginning to feel like an archaeological expedition. I posted a little about it here, about how my heroine seems to have gotten lost in this story.

Well, I think I found her. And it only took tossing out over 100 pages of manuscript — I think I kept maybe 30 out of the original 150+

So I think this can no longer be classified as revisions.

I think I can safely say that I’m writing this whole thing all over again, pretty much from scratch.



Going around and around in circles as I’ve been working on the revisions of my novel. Got a few new scenes that I wanted to add in, but I’ve been stuck. For months.

And, as you can see, I haven’t had anything to blog about either…
