Observing the Light

By now (see Inventing Constellations in the Black Emptiness) we should all be looking at our writing drafts and noticing the events, how they are threaded, and what image appears. I think you’ll find that some events are missing and that some unnecessary one are present. Think about the image that is now emerging. How can we define it better? Construct the events to thread them as they ought to be threaded.

This is the rewriting process.

What we thought were finished pieces are not in fact finished at all. They are most probably first or early drafts. They may contain the outline of the threaded events, but that’s about all.

So first thing to do is observe, on your backs in that darkness, whatever you can see and ask yourself what now is emerging.
