the joy of revising

i really don't like it when i'm going along with my revision, words flowing, story working, etc, and then i realize i've changed the timeline of the story, because that means i have to make up a new timeline so i can keep track of where everyone is and when things happen. which means i have to stop writing.

oh well. i was stuck on a scene that needed to be re-worked anyway.

Ouch. I've done that too. I'm in the middle of edits on a second draft. So far it's going smoothly.

Words flowing during revision time? I wish! Mine doesn't usually work that way! :)

I know how you feel. Seems like no matter what I change, there always some snowball effect. :)
