I guess I've been writing for long enough that I shouldn't still be surprised at that, but I always am. I've had pivotal scenes go sour in the actual writing before, so I'm always wary of that, and pleasantly surprised when a scene comes out better than I expected in the first draft. So far I haven't written anything in ALDEN RIDGE that I feel like is going to need a lot of rewriting later; that wasn't the case with my first draft of THE GUARDIAN. I guess I'm getting better at this.
