2nd Draft

I've mentioned on here a few times that I'm working on an historical fiction novel set in WWII. I've written a few first drafts in my life, but I've never actually worked on a 2nd draft before! So, it's a new experience for me and I'm learning a lot as I go.

So, in case you've been wondering how that 2nd draft is going...

The first 5 chapters about ready to get butchered.
*sigh*

There was only so much working on a laptop could do for me. Sometimes you've just gotta lay it all out.

I had one English professor in college have our class go through this exercise where we had to cut up all the paragraphs of our short story. Then we had to give it to another person and they arranged it in the order they thought made sense. It was quite the revealing exercise! I was kind of going for that with taping it all up, but really, it's just easier to make notes this way when I can see it all at once. :-)
