Nearly There

November 12, 2010

Things are really coming along with the read through of my WIP. Just in the last few days, I’ve gone over five chapters, more than I’ve done in the last month! I’m over half way through the read over now.

I’ve effectively finished school now. For. Ever. (Really scary), as I’ve finished all my assessment. Next week, I have a few days of what Education Queensland calls ‘alternate program’, then graduation.

I’ve made it my goal to finish the read over before I finish school. With all this free time I know have, I’m spending a lot more time with my novel and should complete the goal before the end of next week.

Wish me luck!


Revision Blues

November 5, 2010
  • My chapters are too long. They need to be cut in half. This would also probably make me move quicker in my revision, as I think I’m much more likely to work if I can do it one chapter at a time.
  • Smaller chapters = less time needed to revise = able to find more time = done quicker
  • When I wrote the chapter I had NO idea on correct apostrophe use. GAH!
  • Oh-my-god-how-can-I-only-be-reading-chapter-nine-when-I-started-reading-over-in-july?
  • Exam Block begins today. There goes any chance of editing for the next week.

How are you going with your novel?
