Still on that chapter

And I have been writing. It’s just that this is a fight scene, and one I am rewriting from a new character’s POV. So I’m not just fixing up the fight, but rewriting big chunks of it because Barb wouldn’t know what a trained warrior would. It’s exhausting, mentally.

So I’ve been not so much rewriting as rearranging Red Witch. No new scenes, just a new timeline for scenes. Occasionally, I switch POV or squash a few together, or extend something, but nothing new.

In the great plotter (people who plan out their stories) vs pantser (People who just make their stories up as they go), I’m a plantser. Studying plots and storytelling means that I tend to think in more general terms when drafting. […]
