But I'm happy. Know why? Cuz I'm now working the second draft of Number Three of the Elouise Norton series.
And this is the first page of Chapter 4 which used to be Chapter Three.
That's a wonderful thing about second drafts. That and a few other things:
--using my favorite tools like my Staedtler pencils, stickie notes of every size and color
--writing everywhere on the page
--name changes cuz you now know the people you're writing about
-- research being more direct cuz you know what your story is about
--crossing out and stet-ing and lines
--new titile cuz again you know what your story is about.
There be monsters off in the second draft -- and here is where you slay them and create your own.
Second drafts? I feel in control. And as a control freak, I can dig it!
Even as some woman is peeing in a tiny room three feet away from me.
