Revising is painful. Truly gut wrenching as whole sections get replaced. My word count has gone up which makes me happy but the detail I missed the first time round annoys me. Why didn’t I do the descriptions properly?
An answer that is really easy, in my mind I see everything, I dream it I am aware of it and as I write I forget my reader isn’t in my head and the descriptions are needed.
So I am going back and glaring at it.

  1. Don’t beat yourself up about it, that’s what first drafts are fore. The most important part of a first draft is to get the basis of the story down, then go back and add the details and insert things that were missed the first time around.
