Revision Notes IX

I just cut a scene I loved.

Now I must fill the place in my heart where it was with a new scene, and hope that my book will forgive me for cruelly excising so many words.

Edit:
Only Five Chapters Left.

  1. How sad! Gary Corby once told me that you're not a true writer until you've really excised your manuscript of all those words you really don't need.

    I had a beautiful scene at the Pyramids that got chopped in early revisions. It really hurt!

  2. I've chopped about 2K out, throughout. But I think the scene I wrote to replace the one I cut is AMAZING, so I'm not as upset anymore!

    Yay!

  3. That really hurts, but be proud you were brave enough to kill a darling, and revel in the fact your rewrite is amazing.

    Don't toss that old scene. You never know when it may come in handy. I plan to use an excised scene for tomorrow's blogfest. :)

  4. It's in an earlier document edition, so nothing is lost forever. :)

    I have NO idea what I'm posting for the blogfest tomorrow!
