It’s not perfect, but it’s done.
After several long weeks, I finally finished that pesky third draft that has been plaguing my every thought.
Remember how a few posts ago I wrote about how a second draft was like a forest fire? Well, this draft was like trying to put the forest back together after the flames and then attempting to make it look better than it did before getting torched.
I kept rereading my previous draft, wondering how I could possibly repair the damage I had wrought without overdoing.
In some cases, I have been able to fix certain errors in my work, however, the result is that it becomes completely sapped of all personality. Personally, I’d rather have a project that’s zanny and nonsensical than boring.
Luckily, I think this draft is neither A nor B.
It’s full of action!
It’s 68 pages long….!
Oh, well. I’ll worry about that later. For now, I will relish in the fact that I have stuck with this project for so long and am planning to see it through to the end. Whatever the fate of my story will be, I will not stop giving it the love and affection it deserves!
