Re-writing. Ugh.

I struggle to get a first draft written but when it’s done, there’s seldom much rewriting to do because every time I sit down to write I first go back over what I wrote the previous day and make any changes that seem appropriate.

Unless I’m writing a new and different kind of story. Then there’s usually more rewriting. Darn.

Like the story I ‘m working on now. THE LEGACY has ghosts and I love the story but in my concern to do ghosts right I neglected some of the most basic story-telling rules.

Like what the heroine is doing in the story. And why. And where she’s going. I was great about the ghosts, just ignored the main character.

Oh well, that’s what rewrites are all about. Good thing I’m way ahead of deadline and that my computer works!
