Oliver Drummond ... the re-write

Stuart Palmer, in this month's Writing Magazine, says that "writing is quarrying, rewriting is sculpting" (and sadly, it's the last of his monthly insights for the 'Fantastic Realms' column). And I'm hoping that I'm doing a spot of sculpting with my re-write of Oliver Drummond and the Four Horsemen. I've started editing and the impact the changes have had on the story are already becomming apparent: character motivation, holding back of info, building doubt and suspicion.

Hopefully.
