Step by Step

Back to the Complimentary Murder revision. It is easy to get distracted by the corrections, feeling that to change so much means that it sucks. I have to remind myself that many writers' claim the motto, "Writing is rewriting." If I keep reducing the suck factor and increasing the cool factor, eventually it will become worthy of the publisher's money.

So far tonight I have made changes in two more pages, but I still need to try and add 10 lines of new text for those pages. It shouldn't be hard since this scene feels sketched instead of fully formed.
