Brain Change

Something good has happened to my writerly mind. I haven't done much NEW writing this week. I've been doing lots of revising. Suddenly, I'm able to look at some of my treasured, old "masterpieces" with fresh eyes. I see that they aren't so special after all.

Even my beloved Rudy story...the one I was so bent out of shape about a few weeks ago when I discovered Punk Farm...has room for lots of improvement. I think I can save Rudy though--he'll make a nice magazine piece once I've clipped his feathers.

I spent some time reworking another favorite last night. My critique partners were right--it was wordy! What they were too kind to say was that it was also choppy. I cut 500 words and it flows much better now!
