Speaking of zero editing impulse, even though I had these profound thoughts about tense and interest last night, I’ve had zero impulse to edit the novel today. Partially because I’m having reservations about some of my outrageous ideas from yesterday, mostly because I don’t have a good editing process. I need lots of space, I’ve decided. Enough space to not think about where I’m putting things. Basically, I need a space clean enough to mess up and all my spaces right now are too messy to have an added mess.
