Ok, change of plans. I am going to rewrite my original story, focusing on a tighter plot and a precise POV, with proper motivation and goals. I received a ton of comments regarding my story and characters; they urged me not to abandon the story, which they feel is really compelling, but to focus on making it better through tighter writing and structure.
With a complete rewrite, I should be able to achieve the desired goal with a plot, story and characters I have already fleshed out.
One question: do you focus on showing rather than telling during the first draft? Or in later revisions?
The reason I ask is this: I find it slows me down, because my mind isn’t set to that mode of writing.
Thx for your support and any comment you might leave!!!
