June 19 Part II
Five more drafts of “Knowing” this morning, but I got the final out before the noon deadline. Some of it was fun – the rediscovery that choosing a word with a different shade of meaning suddenly makes it click. Some of it was not fun—how could I keep missing some of the same typos? And some logistics needed to be fixed. But at least I got to cut out extraneous dialogue. I always love to cut.
I tried to get going on the edits for another story, but, well, after five drafts this morning, ick. I don’t want to do any more editing today. I’m going to have a good lunch, do a bit of reading, and then do some fresh writing.
