monotype on paper.
Because it is very hot, I've largely spent the last few days in front of a large fan watching series re-runs - sipping restorative drinks, languidly humid and suitably unclothed.
The Next Generation, Voyager, Highlander, Relic Hunter, but mostly of CSI.
I tend to gorge and glut on shows I like, though normally I don't watch much television. And with CSI I don't care whether it's Miami, NY or Vegas - because I've not watched the show before. My mind wasn't in that sort of forensic mode.
I noticed some episodes tend to linger in the mind - or, more precisely, specific scenes or dialogue often do - either because they are particularly effective or particularly not.
It's the same thing with one's MS.
After a piece is drafted, certain lines or scenes may tend to linger in the mind as either darlings or demons.
Ignore the darlings. They don't always need to be killed. Nor do they need to be fondled.
Pay attention to the passages that unconsciously nag. The ones you find yourself revisiting while you are gainfully employed in mowing the lawn, sorting the laundry or cleaning out the litter box. Your internal editor is trying to tell you something.
These are the ones which will propel you to annoy an external editor with last minute revisions if they are not fixed earlier. And the ones which will make you wince later if you see them in print.
