Revision Frustration

March 2, 2008

I keep wanting to finish revising my novel and submit it…and I keep not revising it.  I stare at the file, I flip to LJ and wonder why no one has updated, I stare at the file, I play in Photoshop for a while, I stare at the file, I go through and tag some old LJ entries, I stare at the file…

It isn’t like I have no idea where to go with this. I know of at least two scenes that I need to write, and I know there are some nuances I need to insert in already existing scenes. I’m just not doing it.

I do feel like all the novels I’ve written since learning how to plot have come out cleaner in terms of focus and action…I just sometimes don’t know all the nuances and connections before I start writing, and since I am still discovering motivations after 20,000 words, the earliest scenes are often most in need of revision. But for whatever reason, I can’t bring myself to do all the little things that need to be done before I have a novel ready to seek an agent.
