I am sorry for how many of you I have killed.
I made the decision to revise by hand before I realized that this draft would be 85% new material. (I am also sorry to all the pretty colored pens I have depleted, but that is another blog post.) I don't know why my brain thought it would be easier to keep track of everything this way. It doesn't look terribly efficient in this picture, does it:
|I am sorry that this isn't even the extent of the damage of draft 2...that it is missing another 1/4 of the draft that did not yet exist when I took this picture.|
And...sorry for not making a single plot note in a word document, and instead writing them all down in notebooks.
Please forgive me for the thirty pages I'll waste tomorrow. For the packet of 500 sheets that I bought at the store and went through without a second thought.
And, if you can, try not to think about what draft 3 is going to be like.
If it makes you feel better, I recycle everything. And I'm usually too lazy to buy paper towels, so I end up using dish cloths, which does not kill any of you.
Please do not drop a large branch on me while I am out walking.
With sincerest regrets,
