As I continued scribbling notes for my rewrite of Apocalypse Pictures Presents, I realized something kind of important: I have some gaps in my research.
As in, I haven’t really done any.
Oh, I’ve done a little, sure. But for the most part, I coasted through the first draft on what I already knew, or thought I knew. And that’s just not good enough. It occurs to me that some of the roadblocks I’m running up against in this rewrite stem from my ignorance.
So it’s time to head for the drawing board. I can’t say I’m going back to said board, since I haven’t actually been there yet. Which is, I’ll admit, probably not the proper order for this kind of thing. I’m sure I would have had an easier time with my first draft and with this rewrite had I done the legwork up front.
Ah, well. My hindsight once again proves to be excellent. I must enjoy the challenge, or something.
