Moving ahead

I looked ahead on my notecards before revisiting the scene, and it turns out that Rosie's purse doesn't go missing. That was an idea I had during planning, but I realized then it wouldn't pan out.

ficbot might be surprised that I wrote a scene that is almost all dialogue. I'll have to go back and put in the scenery, but I was in a rush to get the dialogue down.

Now they're walking towards Sacre Coeur, as I redo a scene that previously took place on a train.

Dialogue is usually helpful for quick word counts although it's lousy for the re-writes as you're left figuring out what to add. Although, I once read a book where it was all dialogue done through the telephone. No description at all. O_o

As I'm rewriting last year's novel (phase one of editing) for plot changes, I'm not really doing nano this year or worrying about word count. I'm just using the habit of Nano (I participated 4 years) to help get me back on track with editing.

However, I am really trying to keep forward motion going and get through to the end of this novel with the rewrites. I'm not quite on track, but the most changes are early on... as I go on, there is less and less rewriting to do in order to fix my plot changes.
