I’ve been writing for over 2 decades now. In that time, I’ve discarded several books. Some will never see the light of day. Others I’ll be revisiting.

Revisiting is hard for me to do.

There’s a reason a story was put aside.

And really, I want to keep learning, growing, and honing my writing skills, so why would I go back and rewrite a story when I can start fresh?

For my latest writing adventure, I’m returning to 2013. In this case, I’d abandoned the story because it was written for a market, not out of passion for the story which is my normal starting point. And if I didn’t care, why would a reader?

So now I’m going back to those 6 chapters. Most of the writing is being trashed, but there are some nuggets being saved and built upon.

It is weird territory, like returning to a childhood home after years away. Familiar yet not.

Yet, here I go. Wish me luck.

Until next time.
