February 12

I'm more than halfway through the revisions on my thriller. I have people tell me, "Oh, I love revisions." Yes, so do I-I love revisions when I'm writing a first draft...and I am sitting there wondering how I'm going to get the scene to form and how the book goes and whether the story is even worth all the effort-that's when I love revisions. I sigh longingly over the thought of revisions. I tell myself, "revisions are so much easier."

But when I'm doing revisions... I long for rough draft time. I sit down and sigh and think, "first drafts are so much easier..."

It's a process. If done well, both rough draft and revisions take time and during any project you have your good days and your not so good days. So, here's to enjoying the process.

  1. I love revisions, but not nit pick editing. It's fun to fill in better words I hadn't thought of the first time around.
