58,143 and Counting

To be a writer is to throw away a great deal, not to be satisfied, to type again, and then again and once more, and over and over.
--John Hersey

I'm back to In Her Eyes. How is it I wrote 50,000 words in November but am only at 58,000 words now? It's true that I needed a break from the story, so that's part of it. Now I'm eager to revise and send it to a few readers for advice. When I first started revising, it was quite a chore. It's still challenging, but I'm more invigorated by the process. I will enjoy that while it lasts and keep going. I'm filling in some of the early sections of the story right now, and will keep moving forward.

I've been reading Scene and Structure by Jack M. Bickham. It's been interesting so far. Some of the suggestions I have been doing instinctively, probably because of the amount of reading I do. Other advice should be helpful in future.
