Lost in the Weeds, A Perspective on Revisions

RevisionsI’ve admitted before that I’m an editing whore.  I get stuck in an endless round of edits and never get to that “Final” version of my WIP.  Currently, I’m stuck in Revisions Hell.

I got 13,000 words into my WIP and didn’t like the way it was headed.  I tried some minor character and plot revisions with no avail.  So, major revisions here I come.

This unfortunately means I will lose pretty much all those 13,000 words (nearly 6 chapters).  I have learned in the past that, unfortunately, when I do revisions of this magnitude, trying to cling to the original draft of the manuscript ends in a horrible mess with continuity errors, etc.  It’s better to start fresh.

So, here’s me starting over.  I am however much, much happier with the direction of my revised characters and plot.  Hopefully that will stick past 13,000 words this time.

Cheers and kisses,

Heather
