Like most writers, after one project has been edited and I'm waiting for the release, I begin a new project and in this case, it's on Temporarily Out of Luck.
Often times, writer friends will say they had to chuck the first chapter or take out so many words. In my case, I haven't had to erase anything, but rather, rearrange. For a long time I couldn't put my finger on why the last third of what I'd written didn't seem right. Then it came to me! Some parts are out of sequence. I had two choices:
1 - Leave as is and try and fix.
2 - Move and hope that fixes my problem.
Yesterday, I went with "Move."
I thought I could dive in and make the writing sing from there. But the magic wasn't happening. So instead of throwing up my hands in dismay, I went with start from the beginning and revise as I went. And ultimately, I believe this will be best. I think the timing will lodge in my head and all will be clearer in the long run. And the parts I need to add will fall into place - *crossing fingers*.
If you're a writer, what causes you to toss your hands in the air?
If you're a reader, what makes you throw a book at the wall?
