I wonder if those major plot revisions ever become less wrenching, or if it's just a case of becoming more willing to endure the wrenching. I'm already steeling myself for the giant changes which will no doubt have to occur with Limerick--my piece for NaNoWriMo--but it might be easier simply because I haven't been spending as many weeks upon weeks with it, growing attached with each re-read. I think that might be a problem of doing as-you-go revisions--you get super-sticky-attached to what you decide to leave in. Or I do, anyway.
