Weekly writing check-in: the one with some writing

To be honest, I was a little scared to try the redraft. I wondered: would it work? Was this a crazy idea? One week in, and I think the word count speaks for itself.

I should be clear that I’m not copying what I already have in the first draft. Even scenes that stay mostly the same need to shift in subtle ways–characterization, world-building, and what-have-you. I have sudden thoughts, such as: Wait! I need to introduce the poodle!

I also received a check this week for a story I sold  a while back. In the memo line was:

For Incriminating Evidence

Incriminating Evidence is the title of the story. Still. It feels slightly illicit.

And, speaking of other stories, I got a couple out the door as well. So, all in all, it’s been a good week.
