This thing is working already

First I tell you not to expect anything and then I post twice in one day? What kind of fucked-up game am I playing with you, gentle reader?

Alas, this will but be a quick update for those of you who care how I get on in my endeavours, as I’m pleased to inform you that my relinquishing of the daily post target has reaped dividends: I wrote five new pages of Scars today, completing all of the new scenes for the second draft. Huzzah!

This doesn’t mean it’s finished; far from it. I still need to rework the old scenes I hadn’t thrown out according to my notes and go through these new ones at some point to ensure they’re progressing the plot, keeping the characters consistent and generally being quite entertaining and not just festering piles of elephant dung.

So there’s plenty of work to be done, but this is still an important milestone, not least because I enjoy reworking existing material (i.e. scenes that have already been written but just need to be made better and/or shorter) so, SO much more than doing them for the first time. Ergo the next few weeks shouldn’t be as teeth-grindingly frustrating as the last couple of months.

Well, fingers crossed anyway.
