This past week was quite a bit more productive than the last. I knocked off a few of my weekly goals, though I still have a few I didn’t finish, and got myself ready to start my biggest project yet: editing my novel!
Yesterday began the countdown for rewriting and editing my novel. I ordered a really great book from Amazon, The 90-day Novel by Alan Watt. It breaks down the editing process in 90 days, which I am hoping will make it a little easier to handle.
My first week of rewriting looks like this:
I finished day 1 yesterday, along with my first read through of chapter 1. I have an entire page of issues that need addressed in chapter 1. The bad news it is my shortest chapter! But, I am ready to tackle this thing and cut and rewrite whatever I have to.
As far as my reading goes, I finished Writing the Fiction Series. I’ll be posting an review on that probably next week. I also started a new book from my Blogging for Books list, Billy Joel. You can probably figure out what it is about, or who it is about by the title. I love books about music and musicians, so I am enjoying finding out a lot more about the man behind some of my favorite songs.
Since it is the first of the month, I thought I’d update my reading challenges too.
Genre Challenge 0/10
I’ve got another big week ahead of me. I’ll be plugging through week 1 of The 90-day Rewite and finishing my first read through. I’m just going to take a deep breath and dive right in!
