A Rethink Day on ISY

I See You started meandering on me. I could feel it turning sideways, so rather than continue, I spent this morning doing a line-per-scene for the last 24 scenes of the book. I’m not quite satisfied yet, but I have enough to keep the boat sailing in the right direction while I get the last bit right before the ending (which I’ve known since I finished the proposal, and which will NOT need to be reworked). I’m still okay on time to finish this.

Now I need to get to work on Hawkspar, where I need a solid charge-ahead day. I’m in the middle of the Wall of Alarming Colors, managed to rip out two completely unnecessary red-card scenes and toss them [insert wild cheering here], and am facing the rest with grim determination. After this, a field of cool green revision awaits.

    Wall of Alarming Colors…sounds vaguely Hitchhiker’s Guide. Now you just need the Peril-Sensitive Sunglasses – so you won’t have to see it. 😉 But I’m teasing – OVER THE HILL! (wild cheering)

    Isn’t that so very satisfying to be able to rip stuff out and toss it in the bit bucket? Especially when it wasn’t working to begin with? Wild, wild cheering.

    The Wall of Alarming Colors? Love the way that sounds!
