So I’m looking through my works-in-progress files trying to decide what to finish next, and I pull up a really old one, fifteen years ago, called You Again. And the thing that’s surprising is that it’s good. There are about fifteen different versions of each scene, but the writing is good. And my first thought is, “I can’t write like this any more.” I’ve lost the sounds of those people’s voices. Also, the plot? Not great. So I’ll keep working my way through the files to see what’s in there, but I’m not sure about that one. Although I have newer scenes, maybe only eight years old that have Alice as a teenager in there. Huge potential.

That’s my work this week, finishing a book and resuscitating the dead (manuscripts). What are you working on?
