So, I am going wide with my writing. As my books come out of exclusivity with KDP I am making preparations for them to be sold on a several more storefronts. Part of the process is re-editing them.
In so doing, I an realizing that when I wrote some of those earlier works I didn’t know as much about writing as I do now. (I don’t know as much now as I will next year). During this editing process I would like to think I am improving on the works, making them better.
You know, giving myself and my work a second chance. Like this guy:
Awhile back, George Lucas upset some people when he added/changed/updated/re-edited STAR WARS. But, I think I get it now, why he did it.
His fans loved what he originally did, but he loves the story, and maybe wanted to make it the best possible. With advances in technology and skill level, or the benefit of hindsight, he thought he could/should do that.
I might not have understood that at the time, but I think I do now.
