Revision redux: Round 1

scrivenerscreenshot

I am amazed to find myself making progress. I know I said in the last post that if I can get started, things usually work out. The problem is I never believe things will work out, one reason starting is so hard.

I admit some of what I am doing is easier thanks to the writing app Scrivener, which allows me to rearrange, categorize, and annotate the existing scenes. I don’t think I would try undertaking such a revision without it. Of course, it helps that I’ve had a lot of practice with this app, and I’m a sucker for trying out different kinds of software, something that some writers do not enjoy.

So far, I am not overwhelmed by the endlessness of the work ahead, as I was last time I revised. I am not sure if that’s because I am in denial or because I am, well, used to revising this novel. One difference, perhaps, is that I am focused on the goal of Better, rather than the goal of Done.
