Revising Has Begun!

Well, last night I cracked open the script to start revising. I grabbed my red pen and took to the page. Granted, I only edited the first two pages, but still, it's progress!

I finally feel like it's been a long enough time away from the script that I can return to it with a fresh perspective. The problem now, of course, is finding the motivation to revise. It's not like scribbling on the page with the pen is very difficult work, but I still find it's hard to pick it up and start working.

It should be very easy, because at this stage, mostly what I'm doing is pointing out stuff that doesn't work, rather than offering suggestions on how to fix it. When I go to make the edits in Final Draft, that's when I will actually do the fixing. But for now, I'm merely circling issues, pointing out mistakes, things like that. A rough cut to the rough draft.

Hopefully I will be averaging more than 2 pages a day, or else this will take a while. I just have to get back into the swing of things.
