The Many Works of Pat Hatt
What? Is IWSG going all repeat, redo, remake, reboot, re…is there more, today? Who needs such a repeat display. Are we going Hollywood? Hey, at least there is money there if you want to get down in the filth and get it. I’ll digress, as I go all rework today with the question that came due.
Have you ever pulled out a really old story and reworked it? Did it work out?
I don’t have any old ones that I’m sitting on. I’ve deleted a few of my firsts as they stunk. I then reworked one of them into another story I was writing and that worked out just fine. The other I have saved in my head, now I’m sure I can pull it off but it is just one of the many ideas rolling around up there.
I have reworked a kids book or two that I had written on my blog before I actually published anything, both of which turned out to get a good reception. Tarsier Man seems to be a hit, he gets more sales than most others. Then again that could be because he has 16 or so out so far in his series. But he just started as a blog pest for the cat and then poof, own series. Same with the Drazin character. Sometimes they just come to life and want to be used.
So re-worked a few have been, but no reboots, redos, repeats or remakes. I’ll save those for when I’m, yeah right, rich and lazy. Anything you re-worked at your sea?
Enjoy life, forget the strife.
