I forgot to mention in the last post an Example of re-writes I use to do all the time. When Curb Your Enthusiasm was regular TV viewing for me, I would just write endless amounts of dialogue and scenes with Larry in mind, using his voice in my head. I was beyond thrilled with the stuff that I was coming up without really even trying. This isn't me bragging, but more about pointing out that your characters and the story will write itself when you 'let go'. I always heard this from people like Stephen King and Quentin Tarantino and this was one of those moments where I really just let go and went with it, letting the characters take me on a journey, rather than me trying to guide them where I wanted them to go. I need to find my backup files with them on it. I still have a few lines of dialogue and scenes in my head that I wrote years ago that still make me smile when I think about them. These kind of moments are what I like to call "lightning in a bottle" moments because you know that while you're writing this stuff as it happens, you know it's damn good and can't believe your dumb luck of what's pouring out of you onto the computer. Man, I really hope I can find them. I think I saved them either on those floppy discs as well as filling up a couple of CD's worth of stuff.
