The Pain

Posted on 01/13/2010


I just realized I need to go back and change a scene on a story I had considered complete.  I have to revise the scene and then figure out how it’s going to affect the rest of the story.  The scene needs more punch and I need a huge blow up that doesn’t happen now. My protagonist takes the answers the antagonist gives him with little or no conflict or questioning the antagonist in the scene. He just accepts the answers. While this wasn’t a big deal to me at the time of writing, I want to go back in and make it an exploding scene that will drive the rest of the story home.

I guess that’s one good reason to sit on a story for a while and not just say, “It’s good enough.”  

But of course, it’s never good enough, is it?
