The Big Delete

15 Feb


My writing week has been significant for the progress I have made, but equally so for the amount of work I have deleted. Sometimes it can take ten minutes to make a satisfactory sentence; developing from simple to complex and descriptive.  Whole passages have been deleted for the sake of simplicity, then after an hour of total absorption and mental agony, I have a page with which I am more or less content. However, as this is the first draft I am aware that after further revision it will probably change  beyond recognition.   

Finding the right word is also time consuming, and in an attempt to introduce some varied vocabulary I made use of the thesaurus on my iPhone. This became an entertaining and distracting pastime and resulted in some serious procrastinating, as is the case with blogging, I might add.
