not that y'all care, i know, but this is how half my writing goes:
-put words on paper, sometimes complete sentences, usually extremely simple
-rewrite, expand simple sentences into crappier longer sentences
-self beta, changes sentences structure, paragraph structure, makes a billion notes in the margins
-rewrite, change everything from the beta read through
-self beta again, another billion notes in the margins, decides to go back to the first way again
-rewrite, changes everything AGAIN
yeah, ugh. seriously you guys, i have at least 4 separate print-out rewrites on paper alone. THIS ONE, ON THE COMPUTER, IS THE LAST I SWEAR. one of these days this thing will actually go to beta *siiiiigh* but at least i'm working on it again.
it's just funny because the other half the time, this shit doesn't happen and i like what i completely wrote out the first time. idgit :(
oh yeah, spoiler for snippet if you care, btw. and all my WIPs, lol.
so i may be a bit anal retentive, i think...
