A Rework At Play!

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.

If you sit on them long enough, you won’t have to publicly reboot because it will be top notch by the time you finish working on it! How cool that two in your stash began on the blog!

    True, as they are there and more time to go over them. Blog sure led to much.

LOL, remakes and reboots, yeah, when time has forgotten them and you want a new generation to find them. 🙂

Re-writes, isn’t everything a re-write by the time you get out of edits?

    Pretty much the case, cash in on the old name brand. Everything gets the re-write indeed by the end.
