January saw the work on the re-write go on hold. Partly because of some other work and partly because I hit a chapter that just didn’t want to be re-written. A POV shift that works better for the story at that point, but that character wasn’t about to tell me what they wanted to say or do just then.
Once I got them sorted, it was all go. Now I’m about half way through the chapters!
The nice thing about being roughly in the middle, and having done some further tweaks to the already visited chapters, is that I feel like I’m not just making minor improvements. I actually feel like this will be a “superior version” to the original.
Of course that’s what you want with a re-write if you draft the way I do, but I was slow to hit my stride with getting the kinds of improvements I wanted.
