I’m writing this lest, I be forgotten.
I’ve actually had writer and non-writer thoughts worthy of a blog, but . . . I’m in the midst of a tunnel called editing. I thought it was going to be “easy” or perhaps, routine would be a better word. But this is my first time going through with an actual dedicated beta as opposed to a critique group. The result is I keep having to rewrite large sections. And it’s not going very quickly.
A fog rolls in and I’m staring at the same text moving sentences around, cutting, rewriting, moving around, until I look at the screen and just wonder what I was supposed to be saying with this scene? I worry I’m just destroying my voice in pursuit of pleasing my betas.
But I think it will lighten up with the chapters that follow. I hope.
In the meantime, Evangeline
