Interviewer: Was there some technical problem there? What was it that had stumped you?
Hemingway: Getting the words right.
(From "The Art of Fiction," The Paris Review Interview, 1956)
So - I'm into my third rewrite of Of Night And Light...only thirty six to go. Actually, if I'm honest, it's not so much of a rewrite but a checking through of the previous rewrite before I send it off again.
It's scary how much I like what I've written. That is NOT, by the way, arrogance. Other writers will understand, I'm sure.
