Gloomy Monday
Draft 1
1-4 (@20K)


Read through 80 pages of the first draft at a coffee shop. I didn’t weep, so that’s a good sign, but man.. so much work ahead of me.... The one good thing is that I think the bones are still the right ones. But overall, the entire thing ranges from fair to middling to WRONG!!  Oddly enough the parts I had written off as being difficult to write and assumed would end up the weakest bits  (brawling and sexytimes) ended up being the strongest bits. O_o. The other parts (Cafe Society and laying things on the table)  just made me tired thinking about how much work they would need. This beast will require so much redrafting to get off the ground. Where to begin, where to begin?  So pretty much: chapter 1 and 3 not so great, chapter 2 and 4 marginally better but still will need to be more or less completely rewritten.  (I looked back at the old blogs for when I started the edit on my last story and as usual, I seemed to have gone through the exact same thing with The Escape Artist, but perhaps more severely so. I think that thing took 8 drafts...) Well what will be will be. Tomorrow starts the blue penning of doom.
