One of the things that I missed most when I started school was having free time to write. Last year, while I was working (and not in school) I finished NaNoWriMo, and then over the summer, I took another look at my baby first draft, and thought this is not right. So I re-wrote the whole book (the worst/best idea of my life), but when September hit, I had no time left to edit. The second messy draft of Seeing Voices has been hanging over my head for a long time, and now that I'm finished with my exams, I've been diving back through the pages that I wrote this year.
Here's a few little snippets of what I've been finding as I read through my notes again...
|Clearly, I wasn't that happy with the state of my writing|
|Oh, apparently I found something I liked|
|Me on Oct. 16th had no patience for anything|
|I wish I could remember how late at night it was when I was writing these comments...|
|Did I forget how to use the question mark on my laptop?? who knows.|
Do you ever find hidden gems like these when editing your second or third (or fifth) drafts?? Wanna share some of your favourites?
