Rewrite

There are things in the novel I'm rewriting that surprise me. Things I'd forgotten all about. Gosh did I write that? And some of them are things I wouldn't write now. It's not that they're bad in any way; they're just the product of a different mindset. I have turned into a different person in the two years since the novel was "finished".

It means that what I'm doing now feels like a collaboration. I gratefully accept these contributions from my younger self and incorporate them into the new structure. Hey, nice one, younger self- I wouldn't have thought of that!
