I am considering some serious rewrites to a manuscript. Right now my focus should be on finishing my WIP, which is halfway done, but I'm instead thinking about the flaws of a finished manuscript. I have 'the grass is greener' syndrome. This happen every few months or so. I'll think all is well in my writing world, then I'll get hit with the bug and start questioning my storyline. Where is it all leading? And is it getting to that destination the right way? I then want to tear through the whole thing and redo it from start to finish. Which, as you know, will take a while. I'm a slow writer. Not beccause I lack passion or anything, but because there are one too many distractions in my life (four of which need constant care and attention). Gah! Frustration at its best. Here's hoping I can hang on and finish one thing before tackling another. Hopefully by then my ridiculous need to redo the story will have flushed away.
