Change of Direction

I just deleted over two thousand words. It stings a little, but the story will be better for it. I got a better idea, which meant I had to toss the old stuff. Everything I wrote previously on Nano is now in the 'delected scenes' area, and I'm ready to move forward with this newer, better plan.

As much as I hate deleting, I love this new direction my book is taking. Love it, love it.

And now, back to work. :whipcrack:

(Yes, I know... I'm supposed to be editing on the weekends. I did a chapter of Manhunter - really I did - and then a whole new beginning for the WIP jumped out of nowhere, and I was off. For the record, I love that, too.)

It's always great to get re-excited about a project.

Right there with you. Delete, delete, delete. That's all it seem I do. I know I write some but that means I have to delete.
