I’m currently revising one of the stories I workshopped at Clarion. Kelly Link told me that she thought it was largely successful, but that I used too much summary, and that the way to revise it was to expand it by about 2000 words. Well, as of yesterday I’m about 3/4 done with the revision, and I just passed the total wordcount of the previous draft. Even better, I feel excited about the new material, and the streamlining of the various emotional entanglements. Basically, after not doing any of this stuff since last summer, I feel like I’m starting to get the hang of it again. Good times.
