All of the great writers say the real writing starts with the rewrite. Most of what I write comes out as first draft and I leave it alone; no sense in revisiting it.
I want to get better and that means a rewrite is warranted.
What you may notice is that some of my stories will appear again with redlines and edits. Finally, I will post the final draft.
This blog was always going to be more of a working space rather than a place to showcase finished projects. In fact, I have a few projects underway that I have not returned to in a while.
Mark Twain used to leave stories in a cubby-hole until they wanted to be worked on again. I have a few cubbies!
Anyway, stories with an edit will be marked Edit and stories in final draft (is anything really final?) will be replaced after the edit.
