There has been a phrase on the first page of my current ms, that has been bothering me. Yesterday, I think I finally figured out why and how to change it. Progress of a sort. I think it will work better. Three little words but it is a first page and so you have to be picky.
I have been taking my time with these revisions but now I am into the rewriting of a couple scenes stage.
The problem with this particular scene as that it has been rewritten from scratch at least three times before. It is a pivotal scene, but it has to be right. The big reason for the change is that I brought someone back from the dead, and my editor decided that it would be much better if he were truly dead and heroic,, rather than alive and brainwashed. So I have had to figure out how to do things, but I think I have it.
Repeat after me -- I do like revisions. In fact I love revisions. Revisions make a story stronger.
