I’ve just jumped into a bunch of revisions on a wip I sent to an Editor. Looks like the ‘writing two at a time will have to wait’
I actually received these suggested revisions last week and have spent the entire weekend wondering what the best way to tackle them was. Before, when I revised a partial with suggested revisions from Mills and Boon, I had to re-write the whole thing again, only managing to salvage one scene. I actually loved revisiting my characters and enjoyed writing the story again.
I’m pretty sure I’ll be able to tweak a few scenes for this story to make them fit, but the start will need to change, as will my hero and his motivations.
So, yesterday I decided to re-write the whole thing from scratch and salvage any scenes I can. (Probably giving myself more work than necessary) but I think it will be the cleanest way to go. The verdict is still out on whether I'll love doing this or hate it. So far, the first chapter was good fun to write.
Of course, if anyone has any suggestions or wants to share their method, I’m all ears ;o)
