Don't Forget to Breathe

A writer is someone for whom writing is more difficult than it is for other people.
--Thomas Mann

I'm back to In Her Eyes. In light of the comments I received from my first reader, I made a copy of the manuscript (so I can refer to the original, if needed), took a deep breath, and deleted the prologue. Part of me wants it back right now, but I suspect it's one of those chapters that was important for me as a writer but not so important for a reader.

I'm now in the middle of rewriting the first chapter. This section bears no resemblance to the previous draft. I like it better, though. It puts my hero in a more active role, and that can only be a good thing. I'm working on tying the new first section with the rest of the chapter, but that may have to wait until tomorrow since I'm pretty tired.

The writing conference is only three days away!
