2/23/09 — With my first draft of ATTACK OF THE MUTANT UNDERWEAR: TAKE TWO done, I’m now going over it to see what fits and what doesn’t, what needs moving, rearranging, or cutting. Lots of work to do, but that’s what I expected. Anybody out there produce their best on a first try? If so, I’d love to talk with you and learn the magic trick.
Actually, I wouldn’t. As strange as this may sound, I like to rewrite. There are few times in life in which you get to redo your mistakes. Rewriting is a gift, and without it I would be doing something else for a living. I’m not a good writer, but I am a very persistent rewriter.
So back to work I go, draft two, woo-hoo!
