I made a breakthrough on my book project this weekend. After letting a draft sit for a while, I came back to read it. It is awful. It's nothing but a disembodied voice complaining. I need to start over but at least I know where I stand.
Have you made similar discoveries? That something you've put a lot of time into just isn't working? Did you scrap it and start over or just leave it in the trash and move on?
P.S. As a reminder, this is a small mailing list of writers. Replying goes to the whole list so we can work through the writing process as a community.
