Revisiting old drafts

I looked over the first chapter of A Science Fiction Fantasy, in preparation for tonight's writers group meeting. I wrote the first draft at the end of 2002 and did revisions in early 2003, and haven't looked at it since.

OK, there's a lot of suck and I have major plans of how to go about revising/finishing. But I was surprised about how much it draws me in. At first I thought it was only Leona and Warren's story, but then even Jainellen's. And the funny part is that even though I remember the overall arc, I don't remember exactly what happens next! So I actually find myself wanting to read the next chapter.

But definitely need to learn more about my characters before I revise. That dialogue is just driving me bonkers!
