We WON!!

Well, I say WE because I do support my husband in his work. But today ended 24 Hours of Daytona and much to our happiness, his motor won in the #4 Corvette GTLM car! Very happy and it will make for a nice day tomorrow at work for him.

So, what did I do this week? Well…kdjames, who is a fellow Reider at Janet Ried’s blog practically threatened to kick my butt if I didn’t start my final revision on my WIP and get it sent in to the request I received back in the stone ages. Or it feels like it was that long ago. So I’ve been working on that this week and have made good headway on it. There are some problems with it and some with me concerning it, but I do know that if I want to get anywhere with it, I have to suck it up and make the corrections and cuts I need. And I am. With a lot of hand wringing. But I am!

What happens when you have to cut and polish? Do you have a terrible time trying to get rid of those words you agonized over when you first committed them to paper? I do, but I diligently cut them if they make the story slower or clunky. I don’t get rid of them though! I have a huge document of cut things that I can’t bring myself to just delete. And I don’t believe you should. After all, what might not work in the current MS may work beautifully in the next one.

So, what do you do with your cuts? I’m curious to know how others handle this.

  • About Me:

    There are only two groups of people in this world that hear voices in their heads-schizophrenics and writers...and sometimes, the line between the two is VERY thin. So far, I'm still a writer... I write paranormal romance then, now, and later. Happy Ever Afters are a must for me. I believe they are for everyone else too.

  • Write the book you love. Write something that isn't what everyone else is writing. That means you MUST READ YOUR CATEGORY and read it deeply. Know what you love about your category. Know what you don't. Think about your book as part of a larger whole.
    Janet "The Shark" Reid, Literary Agent
