Nothing like not considering your words well enough before you have them published is there?
That's the power of the rewrite--or in my case the many many MANY rewrites it takes before I think something that came out of my brain MIGHT be heading somewhere close to the point of being not so sucky that I could possibly, maybe start to consider sending it to an editor. Yes, I'm still rewriting THAT scene that I was working on two weeks ago. I'm up to a version I'm calling Wedding Scene Take 4 now, but bear in mind each version has been played with so many times I must be on take 24 by now. Soon I'm going to have to create a new folder just for the rewrite documents. Gee, it's fun being a perfectionist.
I'm not participating in Nanowrite this year because I had NaOct, but I'm using the Nano deadline to force myself to get these rewrites done. I can't imagine which version of the book I'll be on by then, but hopefully it will only need editing, not major rewriting, by Dec 1. This is the dream. What keeps me going is one of my favourite writing quotes. It's by James A Michener, the master of the epic historical novel (he must have spent years in rewrites): "I'm not a very good writer, but I'm an excellent rewriter."
Touche James. Touche.
