So, after having realised my sci-fi novel was calling to me to re-write it, I buckled down to that while enjoying beach views and good conversation.
I’m a good few chapters in now and the process has been interesting. My beginning has, if anything, returned to the very first approach I wanted for the beginning but had since given up. Some chapters have changed point of view, and one chapter has gone entirely so far. Not exactly what I expected to be doing, but it feels very natural.
It’s actually made me feel like I’ll have a better draft at the end of it, which I’d hoped for but wasn’t sure would result.
