It was a cold (56 degrees), wet (puddles!) day.
The overlook was surrounded by mashed potato clouds, the yellow orb shining through like a pat of melting butter.
I had to be back home by 9 so that DH could make it to a Doctors Appointment by 10.
I dropped off Eldest at 6 and started writing at 611 am.
In my two hours and 23 minutes, I finished read/revison #2.
During this revision period, I was changing POV from first person to third omnicient and changing verb tense from present to past.
I also studied and beefed up the plot quite a bit and rewrote five key scenes.
The bad news is that there is an awful lot of rewriting to do yet. I’m pretty unhappy with most of pages 75-129. There is some good stuff there, but I can see that I need to basically rewrite the middle and end of the book.
The good news is that this is the beginning of week 4 and (thank god I’m a teacher!) I have a total of eight weeks. While I feel the pressure to get the revisions done (the whole point of this summer challenge and this blog), I feel like I’m making good headway and so far have been using my time wisely.
Thank you faithful readers!! You are my muses.
I looked through my composition book of notes, marked pages and made more notes. Tomorrow I’m planning to do some more plotting and planning and then get on with Revision #3.
I’m thinking about the next novel. A basic outline to start? A big outline? Or jump right in again like I did this time?
