If somebody tries to tell you writing is easy, slap them in the mouth and walk away. They obviously don't know what they are talking about.
There are so many writing rules to follow. Not only do I have to follow the rules of grammar, stay in one point of view and limit the use of 'ly' words, I have to follow some industry standard concerning the length of my work. But, if I ever hope to see this book of mine published I have to do this. I must do this.
"But, how do I go about this monumental task?" you ask.
I am a pantser not a planner, so I'm kinda floundering. I started by adding a couple of scenes but, in order for them to fit, I had to change a few things. Well, obviously that wasn't going to work. I could just see the lack of continuity baring it's ugly fangs. So now, I'm going through it word by word, page by page. Adding a word of description here and there; which isn't adding up to much. At this rate, I may have 76,000 words by the end of 2014.
