Snippet Sunday

I was going to share a watercolor painting I worked on this week, but I didn't get around to taking a photo.

Instead I will speak of my writing progress. I decided to reread volume one of Witherwilds. I'm happy to say that I was quite into it at the end of the story (maybe from a little before the 2/3 mark),. The downside of that, of course, is I have a lot of work to do on the opening. If the story, which I obviously like and feel is worth writing, did not engage my interest enough to be impossible to put down, it will not engage a uninvested reader.

At this point, I'm trying to decide if I should go back to the beginning and fix book one or charge on with bk 2. I have a scene that I know needs inserting at the start of bk 2, and I could do that now. But I also have a list of things and a stack of cards detailing changes that need to be made in bk 1.  I know even more things will need changing by the time I get to the end of the trilogy, so the practical part of me says to write on and make changes at the end of having draft one. I don't *think* I have anything in the current list of changes that derails the plot, so I *can* keep on writing. I just don't know if I should. *sigh*

Hmmm. This is less of a snippet and more a glimpse into the brain of a troubled writer.

Anyone what to share what they would do if they were in my writing boots? :P
