Much harder than writing a new book, I think.
What I'm doing is taking a manuscript that's actually not all that bad, as such things are measured, but maybe a little slow and internal and claustrophobic, and trying to open it up and let some light in by adding two POV characters and a whole bunch of explanation as to what's going on in the plot threads that happen while the protag is largely not around.

Reason for stopping: Just got to the top of another scene I need to add, and I am tired and achy and about to go drink a beer and watch an episode of The Man from UNCLE or possibly I Spy to make my brain relax.
