What I’m getting at is we read all these how-to books on writing, characterization, dialogue, plotting--how to do everything including how to blog. But you know, I never really thought that much about revisions. Writing can be messy and fun. Revisions are much more thought provoking. Obsessing...? I’m not talking about the proper word choices for descriptions, or if you need to use a dialogue tag or not. Those are little things and often subjective. I’m talking about the OMG, what was thinking when I wrote this scene? Writing is almost like sex. Revisions are more like giving birth.
Just thought I’d share that strange and bizarre thought. I’m rambling here.
