Editing And Me
Posted July 5, 2011on:
I’ve been busy editing the stuff I’ve spent the first half of the year writing, and while it’s satisfying to see things come together, it’s not nearly the rush that the first draft is.
Still, it’s a good opportunity to make the kinds of changes that will start turning these two very rough drafts into something I hope is worth reading. I also learn more about structure, pacing and just storytelling in general with every pass I make. I think I have the nucleus of something good with these stories, I really do.
And, of course, all this editing is giving me ideas for what I could do next. I’d wanted to stop The Extrahumans at three books, but I think there may be a fourth one in there. There’s at least enough for a short story!
Then, maybe, something completely different. I wrote an urban fantasy short story lately, I’d love to see where that might go in a longer form. We’ll see.
In the meantime, back to editing.
