ah yes, the wonderful revsion. for the first time since starting my writing journey (back in 2005), i'm enjoying a revision. having finished the first draft of my sequel to Eldala, i decided i wanted to work on the 3rd draft of a chick romance i wrote in 2008.
i usually don't look forward to revisions. i'd much rather write a first draft, but this time i'm having fun with rearranging words and scenes. i think my 3rd draft word count is up to 28,000, give or take.
since i'm in the middle of this process, i thought i'd post some quotes about revising.
I can't write five words but that I can change seven. ~ Dorothy Parker
To be a writer is to throw away a great deal, not to be satisfied, to type again, and then again and once more, and over and over. ~ John Hersey
Books are never finished, they are merely abandoned. ~ Oscar Wilde (this is how i felt about my first book.)
