Welcome to Revision Saturday!!! Woo-hoo!
Do I sound overly excited? Perhaps a bit . . . insincere! : )
Once upon a time, in a different place and time, perhaps an alternate reality, I began this blog to track my writing progress. Somehow, this blog became something more than a daily status report of my writerly life.
I don't think it was a bad transition. In fact, I kind of like the new and improved blog.
Still, progress is progress and should be, every now and then, duly noted. Ooooh, I sounded kind of knowledgeable in that sentence. Go figure.
So, today, dear readers, this blog is traveling back in time to the very beginning, when it first emerged from the depths of my - sometimes - slightly depraved mind.
Today, I'm revamping - slightly, a tweak here or there, nothing major, no anesthesia needed - Chapter One of Margarita Nights.
Well, dear readers, fellow bloggers, aspiring writers, I don't like the opening of Chapter One. Nope. Not at all. I did, once upon a time, in the way of fairy tales and happy endings, but not anymore. I have no clue why. I'm just going with my instinct here.
Chapter One needs a slightly different opening. It doesn't need more impact or drama, just . . . something!
So, wish me luck as I open up the document in Word and began this minor surgical, no anesthesia needed, procedure. If you happen to hear a blood curdling scream at some point in the day . . . don't worry, it's just me going totally insane!
