Much Ado About Dotting and Crossing
"There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed." - Ernest Hemingway
|Writing With Intentions|
This is me...well, not really but figuratively speaking. I am buried beneath edits for my manuscript which I so long to finish. There is much ado, to do, for me, I'm dotting the i's and crossing the t's, reworking chapters, and making those awful decisions, -which ones to keep, which to delete? That was the question that plagued my mind over the weekend.
This weeks 'rogue' was my Chapter Nine, -I'd written a whole 'swag' of dialogue, which I was loathe to throwaway. Perhaps it was vanity or naivety, but I spent the best part of last night, rewriting scenes which I'd deleted earlier. Yes, Mr Hemingway, sir... there was much cursing, bleeding and cups of tea spilt. Now though, its a better fit. I love it when writing comes together that way. And I 'm pleased I kept it in. For now.
How's your writing project coming along? And do share any tips for editing, I will swap you - a martini for a tip...its fair.
