The Puzzle Pieces

Right below my feet (I’m sitting on a barstool, at home, not at a bar…) is a notebook containing FJR. It’s broken out into chapters, marked by those divider thingies you get from office supply stores. And I’m working on reivising the thing.

It’s interesting work because I’m not really doing it in order. I figured that I needed to revise about 50 pages or so for the month and looked to see where the 50 page mark was. I rearranged a couple chapters, rearranged them back, added in scenes, expanded scenes, cut pieces of scenes. Here’s the cool part.

I finished Chapter Two last night. But I still haven’t typed up my new Chapter One and I’m halfway through Chapter Three and have not touched Chapter Four (where the 50 page mark should hit, assuming I have not cut too very much).

It’s like a puzzle. I’m seeing how the pieces fit together. Now I’m just concerned that if I keep doing it in this random order: Will it make sense?

Only, knows I God don’t sure.
