I've decided that most of the original story (Rock Star) as it was, was too cheesy to keep. It had me cringing with embarrassment.
What I'm doing now is taking the most important points and rewriting it, averaging about 3K a night. I am swiftly closing in on the ending.
I seriously thought I was going to end on chapter 46, but me thinks not. I am on chapter 46 now, and I may give it about 2 more chapters and then I'll call it good.
Whew! Talk about blood and sweat that goes into rewrites, but it's so fun to revisit my characters and make them feel more real than before!
How many times have you found you had to rewrite? About what percentage do you keep of the original work? Do you enjoy the journey of traversing your plot?
