Unexpectedly, I find myself almost looking forward to my rewriting sessions on Tuskers III. Hopefully I've found the process that works. Seeing the story improve is the main blessing, though.
I guess I just need time and distance, and having it squared up by Lara, and suddenly the whole process is palatable.
Linda was saying that if I keep saying "I don't like rewriting" I'm just reinforcing it. But dammit, if I hate raw onions than no amount of saying I like raw onions is going to make me like raw onions.
Whenever I hit a roadblock like this, I try to find ways under, over, or around it. So I'm easing into this rewriting in a way that isn't totally uncomfortable. I just need to keep finding ways to motivate myself.
