I'm having a hard time revising the story I intend to enter into the Writers of the Future contest. This is the third rewrite on this particular piece. Maybe that's why it's tough. I'm bored with it. I wonder whether that's a normal problem with writing: You work with a certain block of material so much that eventually, you just don't want to look at it anymore. I'm thinking I'm going to put this story away for a couple of weeks and work on something else. Maybe by then I'll be able to generate some excitement for it.
I picked up the Oct/Nov issue of Asimovs this morning. I'm starting with the novella by Nancy Kress. I loved her Hugo nominee and Nebula winner "Fountain ofAge."
