I recently read through the origin of many phrases, trying to find the roots of “Ready, Freddy!” In my quest, I also read the origin of “from scratch” which, according to the article, does not come from baking but from a scratched line in the dirt, meaning the beginning.
I have started from proverbial scratch with Marvel among the Demons, and it’s going lovely.
I am working with what I have, but starting fresh with it, in a new document file, chapter by chapter. Revelations are appearing to me throughout the revision process, and I’ve worked not-so-diligently-but-still on the revisions. Also, I’ve been thinking through the revisions, considering the changes I want to make and that I want to be apparent. That is going best of all.
I’m back in love with my project. And that is the best place to be. ❤
