I've got a problem with my basic writing process. My writing process is: - One of the ideas in my mind grows strong and vivid. - I write it down. - While I write, the imagined scene advances and grows, but it loses consistency from the initial strong image. - I stop when it's becoming tenuous and has lost most of its initial strength. Then, usually a while later, I go through the text to review and correct. However, I've discovered a problem in the very foundation. When I review and rewrite I don't have the initial strong and vivid image in my head, so, while I'm correcting all kinds of technical flaws I also remove things without remembering why they were important or add others without understanding they don't fit the scene. I have to find a way of leaving the scene untouched while I correct the purely technical mistakes. Maybe I should write a review for myself like those I write in the writing workshop and then take that into account as a separate action. Doing three passages over the text, touching it only on first and third. That way when I'm reading word by word and not paying attention to the story I don't touch it, and when I'm touching the story I'm actually reading it. Well, that was productive. I'll have to consider writing you about my problems just as a way of thinking about them and finding solutions. Cheers.
