So last Friday, I stumbled across a post about the WIP IT GOOD Blogfest. I found the original detail post here and thought it sounded interesting, so I decided to participate. There was just one tiny problem: My current pitch kinda sucked. Like, bad. So I thought, “Okay, no biggie, I’ll just fix it.”
Yeah, that turned out to be a bigger challenge than I had anticipated.
I finally finished the polishing this morning. It took me a week of scribbling and thinking and trying not to pull all the hair out of my head (bald isn’t a good look for me), but I finally finished the polishing. At least for now. Till someone tells me it could be better. Because really, in all honesty, it probably could be. I’m still not convinced about the transitions between paragraphs. And I’m only halfway through writing the darn thing, never mind revisions, so it could still go in a completely different direction. But this is the direction in which it’s currently heading, and I think it’s on track to stay that way. So. A plan. I kinda sorta maybe have one. Possibly.
