And in the beginning . . .

Well, I've been doing some writing. I'm currently in the process of trying something new. I'm rewriting my novel. Notice I didn't say revising. Nay, my friends, I am REWRITING it! I'm starting from scratch (with a blank page and everything)! I'm sure that many of the things I've already written will come back into the story, though perhaps in a different way.

"Why?" you ask. "Why is she doing this? Does she need her medication adjusted? Has she held a seance and channeled the spirit of some long dead author?"

"No," I tell you (no matter what you may have heard to the contrary).

This current mania is due to the character sketches I did for each of my characters. They were VERY detailed and I learned things about my characters that I hadn't known before.

So, why don't I just revise and stick in the new things? I suppose I could, but that wouldn't be nearly time consuming, and as you know, I'm all about wasting time. LOL In all seriousness, I'm trying it, but I'm not sure how long I'll stick with it. Don't be surprised if I come back here saying that I've given up and decided to revise instead (perhaps even later tonight).

Still, I'm currently all for it and am enjoying each moment . . . of course I only got a few paragraphs done today, but, eh.

So, I'm off to write some more before I dive in to bed for what I hope will be a good night's sleep . . . so I can get up in the morning and continue.
