Once again, I have completed another revision of a very old story. Remember the story I said did not need revision? It did. I had intended to include it within the collection of short stories I’m publishing soon, but when I sat down to read it, I just thought it read like utter and complete shit. I rewrote the whole thing and am now going through the second phase of writing, also known as editing. Editing your own work is kind of like having an artist tell you if his painting is good or not. I like to beleive that my stories express whatever I need to express and that the reader will come away with the proper sense of what it was that I was trying to say. Not like Trek fanfiction says much to begin with… but anyway. I’m just glad that the work is done and the easy part can begin.
