Since I can't sleep, I'm editing.
No, I'm not tackling anything hard, like condensing one timeline from 6 months to 6 weeks, and the other timeline(s) from 5 days to 2 or 3 (still haven't decided if I can pull off 2 days yet...), and I'm not touching the awful, choppy first page.
I'm starting on a few of the little things... like a couple specific scenes that nearly every CP/reader has gotten the wrong impression from, so clearly these are places where I completely and utterly failed to properly project my thoughts into words.
No big deal, right?
...like the kiss scene (near the beginning), which had multiple small issues
...like Triss' explanation in the car, the *why* of their first meeting
...like fixing the horrible transition in the first scene of Chapter 3 where the timeline was super confusing and clearing up when everything started (for real), and settling the whole age/grade thing
...and once very specific moment where it shouldn't have been the hum of ready-violence in the air...
Little, easy things that somehow keep spinning around in my brain and keeping me from sleep.
I think I just know that I won't be able to start NaNo/November fresh if I've still got 'Brake Fluid' on my mind.
Yup, I totally suck at multi-tasking.
How about you guys? Can you work on multiple stories at once, or do you stick with one from first-draft to final polish before moving on to something new?
