Rollin' Along

My vacation is starting to wind down and I've finally jumped back into Danger. I intend to have the 2nd draft completed by the time I get back to TX a week from tomorrow. (Yes, while several of you will be watching the Rita and GH awards at the Romance Writers of America Conference in San Francisco, I'll be flying home.) I'm very excited again about working on my story. I've been a good author and accepted the fact that I have a few WONDERFUL scenes that just don't do anything. So, they will go in the "Deleted Scenes" section of the website I'll eventually have. I'm not sure what my revision process will look like once I get home, but I can figure that out later. When I come up to RI for my summer vacation, I always handwrite my work. With the amount of cross-outs and arrows on the notebook pages, it takes me a while to get it all organized when I get home. That will be my first order of business. After that I'll be able to work out a detailed schedule.

That's a great idea to keep those deleted scenes for your future website! :)

Bonnie, it's so hard to cut them out of the manuscript, but this way they'll still have a life!
