This week I made it through the first draft of India #4. This is always the ugly part, where I find that I left plot holes (see what I did there?) large enough to envelop giant trucks. Much red ink is spilled during this process. Paragraphs and sometimes entire pages move around willy-nilly. Characters' names are changed, their appearances altered and inevitably I cut something out that I thought was pretty darn good. I just love chunking that first draft into the waste basket.
