I painfully dragged a scene-ish-thing out of myself today, and it was painful. Then I looked at it, and decided that it would strain credibility TOO much, even for the very elastic bounds I’ve set up, for the people to get out of there alive, must less non-captured. So I had to delete most of it and re-write.

Which was painful, but feels so much better now that it’s done! That’s the first time I’ve done that, I think, so I’m newly impressed with how much like lancing a boil that is. Get all the nasty gone, and rewrite! ^_^
Yes I know I need help.

  1. I understand! Especially now that I'm going back and revising one of my novels, it can be painful and yet there is an incredible sense of relief and satisfaction :).

    Good luck with your rewrite! Writing scenes where people have to escape is always difficult (or at least I think so) because there is a fine balance with keeping it realistic.

  2. Thank you, SH! 😀 Perhaps that's why I've found the last many many many words difficult, because I'm trying to write an escape. And of course it had to be a VERY complicated escape.
