Where does one begin?

That’s my current dilemma. I need to revise my WIP and I don’t know where to start. If it was easy, normal revisions (ie. reading it through from beginning to end and editing and changing to make it better) it wouldn’t have been so difficult. However, I need to more or less re-write the last few chapters and I need to add scenes in the middle.

This is new to me since my first MS didn’t need these kind of changes. For some reason that one worked out much better from start to finish, though I have a feeling that in the end this new WIP will be the better story.

I just have to figure out how to do it. I guess I’ll just have to pick one scene and simply write it and add it. I can always make it look nice and neat later in the proofreading and second round of revisions (once the rougher ones are done).

Just feels like such a task. But I want to get it done, because eventually I want to start writing on MS#3. I already have almost 10 pages of notes, so I really look forward to it. But for now, I need to stick to my current WIP.

In the meanwhile, to relax a bit now and then I delve into the World of Warcraft game that I’m recently so addicted to. I never played a lot of games, but this one really has me hooked. I play an Undead character, so that’s kind of funny. I’ve put a picture of her here, I named her Braithe. Isn’t she pretty? *lol* Half-rotting skin and all…

You can click on the picture to get it bigger, btw.

Otherwise there’s no news really. Just spending my days at work (as usual), and waiting for end of June when I’ve got some vacation and am going to Sweden to visit my family.

I guess now I had better look at that WIP again… *sigh* Anyone else ever find revisions troubling? Just knowing where to start is somethings difficult.

  1. Emmie ~ Have about if you take a break from revising for now…and start working on your next project. Whatever ideas you might get for your first Mss after you start your new WIP write them down and figure out from then when you should go back to revising.

    I hope I’m not confusing you, just a suggestion tho’

    Happy reading and writing,
    Isabel
