For me, I realised that I have been rewriting a lot of works or looking into everything, again. Only one of them is complete, the other is quite closely so. But by that point, I figured out where I should go next. Although right now I’m a little less certain whether I will not just say that by the end I will find something new to improve on and start the work all over again.
But I’m just so unsure about whether I’m even heading the right way sometimes. Or whether I might just grow to be unsatisfied with it in a few months. Like I always end up doing with many of my works.
I rewrote a lot of stuff over these few years and many of my ideas have largely been elaborated or even changed.
Sometimes, I’m still not sure whether I should continue doing this.
But I think that sometimes it should be so. As some of this works even way back then, I knew I had to rewrite them. Or even edit them down to the core.
And for my other which wasn’t fully complete, it was something like a project which I thought up within two days. But it sounded pretty good to me. Also by the end of the draft, I did have an idea where I wanted to focus on.
As for my complete first draft, I had it left sitting for nearly four months. Although I spent some time reading and highlighting it, but I never made it beyond chapter four. When I returned to it, I had gone through a lot more and seen a lot more of ideas coming up. Some of which went to the work itself.
And now, when I’m going through a lot of editing and rewriting at the moment. I’m simply asking myself one question: is this a good decision? Or am I straying too far?
I really need some advice on this one, and well that’s why I’m writing this post.
