ACK! That word sends shivers up my spine.
But, that’s what I’ve been doing tonight. My first chapter has never sat write, no matter HOW many times I’ve revised it. Something was still… off. It got better every time, but it wasn’t the BEST.
Driving home from work today, I had a seedling of an idea. Sitting down at my laptop tonight, the idea all but leaped off my fingers. I probably still have work to do on it, but I like it MUCH better so far. I should finish the first chapter tomorrow night.
Rewriting is frustrating to me. It is a necessary evil, but I’d much rather be writing something NEW. So please, be praying for me as I rewrite this first chapter and make it the best I can make it!
What is the thing about the writing process that YOU struggle with the most? Is it dialogue, narration, plotting, setting, revision, editing? How are you working to overcome this area of discomfort?
