Oye vay! The dreaded re-write!

Imagine my surprise when I started editing my manuscript, a few days ago, and today I reached a section that left me annoyed.  Here I thought this was an 'adult novel,' but some of the content left me feeling as though I was reading the kinds of books I wrote 20 years ago.  I'll have to re-write the whole section, and perhaps MORE, as I'm only halfway through editing this first draft.  I'm sure this is normal for authors, but how disappointing!


  1. Boo!!! You are going to have to tell me what part you are talking about!!!

  2. I know it seems discouraging now, but once it's published, I'm sure you'll breathe a sigh of relief. Writing isn't so bad, it's the going back over and over it again in editing to get it just right...that's the hard part. I know it'll be worth it someday! Dawn Dix...Author! :)
