Today's Writing Project:

Extract 40 pages (2 chapters) of pretty bad, jumbled writing from tDW. Make a list of all the plot points that occur in those chapters.

Rewrite the chapters to include all of those plot points, only in half the word length and with twice the tension.

Ah, rewriting.

I'm going to be so happy to start a new book in December. Ah, December, when I'll be rewriting God's War. At least tDW will be in the mail again by October.

3 comments so far. What are your thoughts?

I need to do that, too, except with 10 chapters instead of two.

I'm going to wait until I finish my second revision, though.

Writing is work, though...

Well, yea :)

As far as I'm concerned, I have two jobs.

This is why I need a wife.

Somebody needs to clean the bathroom.
