Trying to edit and revise a story I have had collecting dust on the proverbial shelf is an extremely difficult task. In some places it is difficult to determine where I was going in the story line. Trying to recollect is worst. I had to change character names…male characters. This was such a chore. This must be what parents feel when they are naming their child. Even with all the discarded lines and words, I have a newfound excitement about this story. My mind is bursting with ideas. I haven’t felt this in a long while. I have worked on this every day for the last 13 days. I am 20 pages into editing and I feel good about what I see. This is definitely a process. Let me get back to it.
