Dumb Author Trick

I’m working on a novel and recently did the research to produce some content for earlier in the book. I incorporated the new content into chapter 2, and then I decided to read the novel from the beginning. Big mistake! I’ve restarted myself that way with short stories but they’re, well, short. Novels, not so much. If I’m going to finish this thing, I need to go back to where I left off … in chapter 13. And not distract myself with all the things that need to be fixed in chapter 1.
