I saw a quote today that went something like, “If it feels like I’m writing, I rewrite.” That’s pretty sound advice. My last few chapters of Barcode: New War Order were “meh.” The story was being forced. The scenes had rough transitions and I was thinking for my characters. The end was within sight and I could’ve easily finished before diving into editing, but it wasn’t right. I decided to trash the manuscript and start from scratch. I kept a few bits and pieces, especially lengthy explanations, but the rest is toast. Now, I’m on chapter 5 and working my way back up.
Loving the new story.
