Trilby’s character and inner thoughts are much better expressed and revealed n the second version….I can really feel the fear and at the end the triumph. I did not get that as much in the first version.
Yep. And it took several rewrites to get there. So, don’t give up if the opening scenes or chapter isn’t perfect. It probably won’t be first draft. By the time I rewrote the opening scenes, I’d already written more than half of the book, if not more. So I was deeper into the character, deeper into her personal issues and deeper into the external threats in the whole story.
When you’re in first draft Just Keep Moving.
