Biting the bullet

After two days of hemming and hawing I decided to rewrite this chapter from scratch, too. Technically, it isn’t from scratch. When I rewrite a chapter in this draft, I reuse the summary and incorporate new notes then fill in the gaps. But most the words I keep are new. (can’t keep the summary) My writing friend who I met with today agrees that the two chapters I have rewritten this way read much better. I just might do all my chapters like this. It might be faster and produce a better product. Just wish I had thought of this strategy earlier. Guess I’m still learning. Someday this will be my first draft instead of my second.

Do you find your job is still a learning experience?
