Daily Report

Well, I started very late today, only worked about 7 hours, and did 120 pages worth revising until I came across a paragraph that made no sense at all....

Anyway, I DID cut a little thread that Mentor thought was "a little creepy" and not needed (creepy in a eeewww relationship way), and another scene that, again, Mentor didn't think was needed. That was about 8 pages I think, not so much. And either I was fading or some of the book was Very All Right, because I started and know I managed cutting about a line a page, but the last few scenes I read weren't marked at all...until I got to the strange paragraph.

So, that's that.

May you have sweet dreams and a lovely day.

I wonder if you've ever blogged about why and when you started writing? Have you always dabbled? Or did something happen to get you interested?

What was the thought process that started that first book, and what were the steps, processes, it took to actually get published?

How long from start to finish? Online writer's groups? Education?

Oh I hate that! I usually only have sentences, not whole paragraphs, but oh I hate that! :) *hugs*! :)

Believe it or not, I would like to read the bit you cut because it was "creepy".

I just want to find the edges of the process--I've read all your books, and I know what the finished versions are like, but I'd like to know what bits don't make it in.

If it's too personal, just tell me to buzz off. But as a struggling writer (struggling to come to terms with her writer nature), I'm vastly curious about the process of anyone I think is doing it right.
