Some of you might recall my Insecure Writers Support Group post from last week where I bemoaned the prospect of writing a chapter from scratch in order to have something to submit to my crit group. For the past six months, everything I've shown them has been material I'd already hammered away on for a year, words that had undergone countless rewrites. I dreaded the thought of handing these writers a chapter I'd only worked on for a few weeks.
Turns out they thought this chapter was my best one so far. Either I'm getting better at rough drafting, or else all the rewriting I do is actually
making things worse. Sigh... We'll see what my other crit group agrees.
Anyway, have a great weekend and enjoy the links!
