in your writing? Although I greatly enjoy going back to a section already written and fleshing it out more, adding more detail, editing it, I never feel I am making real progress on the days I do this. I feel like I'm cheating a bit.
Plotting is my greatest hurdle so when I am able to move the story forward, find the next piece in the puzzle, I feel the most productive. Even when I know exactly what's going to happen, getting it down is always a struggle. Whereas going back to page 10 and adding more dialog or describing the place or people a bit more is pure joy. Is it like this for you?
Maybe for some people, the plot comes easiest and it's those details and honing the dialog they dread. What comes easiest for you? Would you rather add three pages at the end of the manuscript or scattered about? Or perhaps any increase in page count amounts to the same thing?
Today, I've got to move forward though. There's only so many ways you can rewrite those first scenes.
