A novel is a rare place you can simultaneously find yourself and lose yourself – Stephen Parolini
This scene officially gave me biopolar.
In the first draft this scene was rather clean and one that I loved. So I went into it – rather stupidly – thinking that revising this scene will be a breeze! RUBBISH! I had put so much pressure on myself to make this scene dazzle and sparkle. Since this scene was already pretty much in tact, I didn’t have much to do which then made me paranoid. Maybe I was cutting a corner and not giving it justice? Or maybe I was just missing something important hence the fact it did not take me that long? Maybe the WHOLE DAMN THING WAS JUST STUPID TO BEGIN WITH.
I should obviously delete it and burn all remaining evidence.
I should feed it to the cat.
I should get a cat so I could feed it to the cat.
Amazing what a goodnights sleep and distance can do 🙂
I printed the scene out and read it like a ‘reader’ would. And I surprisingly enjoyed it. It wasn’t even as bad as my head made it seem.
This revision is turning me into a crazy woman.
But I can happily say 1756 words revised.
Ever had any of these scenes that make you question your mental sanity?
Love and light,
