I experienced one of those editing moments where I cut a phrase-well actually a couple of lines that I thought were good. But looking at them closer, they just didn't work.
When I stop worrying about the editing and just go with it, I find the analytical editing side of my brain switches in, but not to the exclusion of the creative part.
The longer you are away from a writing project, the clearer you can see it when you come back to it.
As the weekend rarely gives me quiet time to write I've started to use that noisy time to do all the other things that lurk around the edges of my conscious, as it helps clear my mind for the editing.
I've created a 20th century Fashion and Beauty board on Pinterest. One of the ideas that has been lurking in my head for years but wasn't fitting into my usual time periods, finally started to make connections once I moved it into the 1920's.
While the majority of pins on the board are 1920's, it also covers 1900 to the late 1950's.
It will be some time before I can give the idea proper attention, but I think it may turn out to be a longer short story...
I've also discovered some of the new changes in Blogger which have made a few things easier.
I now have all my Social Media links showing under a tab- much tidier than being in the side bar.
There's now a tab for My Writing. I still have one thing to add yet, so it's half done.
So, now that's all done it will be back to the chapter one rewrite Monday morning...
