The only downside to my spreadsheet is that I get very attached to seeing the total of words written increase. So attached, that I resist necessary surgery. I looked at one of the scenes impacted by all the changes I’ve made in the last week or so, and realized that it can’t be salvaged. Too much has changed, and the changes are too great.

So I need to be utterly ruthless. I’ll cut what I currently have for the scene and rewrite it from the ground up. If this is the right thing to have done, it’ll only take a couple of days for me to rewrite it and recover the words I lost.

A girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do.
