Revision Blues

  • 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?

    As we speak, I’m printing off my novel for editing – for the last time … I hope …

    It’s complete at 84,000 words and has taken me five years. It’s taken such a huge amount of time because it’s one of six books and I’ve had to create a parallel universe.

    Good luck with your revision – you’ll get there.

    PS. Some of my chapters are way too long – others way too short. I’m exhausted just thinking about it!
