Write and Thrive
I used to go to Gatlinburg ALL THE TIME when I was a kid! I just took my parents to Dollywood for Christmas–love it!
Great stuff. I am in love with your blog. In eight months I have not found one like it.
I lived in Bostone for about seven years. I went to BU and lived there afterwards until I escaped. It is a cold place to live and when I got out and managed to land in Richmond, Virginia I was thrilled in so many ways.
But that was a long time ago. I cannot rewrite stuff that I write for some reason. If it is lost for example in a computer crash. If I know how it’s going to turn out I can’t write it again. Isn’t that strange? Amending is fine and that goes on all day long especially with poems.
Good luck rewriting your novel in another city. I hope it works out.
Thanks for the great compliment!
I do know what you mean about not being able to rewrite things. I have had the same problem (if it can be termed a problem.) I think for me it depends on what stage of writing I’m in. If I am still early in the process and not quite sure what all has happened, then I can change things around. But I agree–once I know what has happened, forget it. No rewriting. I wonder if that is because our characters become so alive to us and once their story is written, that is that. It would be like trying to rewrite our own personal histories. Much as I might like to, that is not possible, alas.
