I've never actually committed any fiction to 'paper' since writing short stories for grade school classes. I've written a couple magazine articles and a chapter for a technical book submitted the week before the publisher went bankrupt (that should have been a sign), but nothing fiction. Although, for the past year, I've been working over a couple of book ideas in my head, fleshing them out a bit as I think them over.
I decided last night to start putting one of them down in Scrivener. Opened up a new project, and started typing. Everything started flowing and I knocked out 1100 words in no time flat, and was quite pleased with myself.
Today, while I was eating lunch, I thought I'd open up last night's file and maybe get a few more details down in the project. I made the mistake of re-reading what I wrote last night.
Phew, that stunk! 3 hours later, and it still smells a bit around here. Anyone have any air freshener?
Now I see why they stress just getting it all down, and then going back and editing later!
