Good Morning Folks,
Don't you just love that saying? Okay, maybe you do, maybe you don't, but I think it's cool.
So yesterday I did (as I said I was going to) actually get to writing on Conjure A Man. Chapter 3 is finished being rewritten (for now). But chapter 4 might need some work. The idea for chapter 4 isn't bad (I mean it makes sense Delaney's vampire friend, Caruso, would want to meet Pierre, especially since he suggested Delaney summon up a human in the first place). However, I'm not sure how well it works (hence the "dash it all" title for today's post). But, that doesn't mean it can't work.
We writers sometimes have to make a decision. Sometimes this decision is easy and sometimes it's painful. And that decision is whether or not a scene works in one particular place or even at all for the story in question.
Sometimes we have these "Dash it all!" moments where we think "If I have to revise this story one more time I'm going to scream!" And other times it's "Okay, so this doesn't work, so I gotta fix it or take it out."
What are some of your "dash it all" moments? Was it hard to fix/delete a scene or was it something you were just thinking "okay it has to happen."?
Have A Triumphant Tuesday!
