I was totally amazed at the amount of rewrite I had to do to fix my ending problem (see last entry for details). I had to totally rewrite two pages and one paragraph to make it work. That was all.
Have you ever rewrite a chunk of your efforts? Did you find it simple or difficult?
I am learning that that with book length stories, unless it is a major thread, changing directions and results can be easily whipped with a word change hear and there. There is a lot of change to a story by the contents of just one or two scenes. Each scene drives itself to an ending and then another scene takes place allowing for new and better information of the reader with each scene. A change of one scene can change the entire story without a need to change the rest of the scenes except maybe the last one, the crescendo, the end.
