Still editing the same rough draft. I’m halfway through the second round of edits! This seems to be a super slow process. At least for me!
The editing is coming along on manuscript number one. Finished it in June, took a break on it to do Camp NaNoWriMo in July, and now doing first round of edits.
So, Camp NaNoWriMo is over, and now comes the scary (and hard) part. Editing.
This is my first time editing a rough draft, and it’s a bit overwhelming, but I’m just gonna dive in. Once I locate a red pen!
Woo hoo! I made it through Camp NaNoWriMo with a word count of over 30,000. Now I have (another) rough draft to work on in August!
I made it halfway through! Really hoping the second half of camp goes just as well as the first half!
The first day of camp went well! Before I did the day’s writing, I mapped out a few scenes in Scrivener that I’ve already pictured in my head.
Then I picked one of those scenes to write, and I met (actually exceeded) my word count goal for today. I love that the month is off to a good start!
It’s a new week and I’m trying a new routine. I plan to do my workout in the morning, nearly first thing, then have my breakfast, and finally, sitting down with a second cup of coffee and writing. It’s an experiment for this week, so I’ll see how it goes.
I can’t write very first thing in the morning, I’m not awake enough! I figure that exercising and eating will not only wake me up, but also give me peace of mind knowing that a major daily task (exercising) is behind me. Being in the proper headspace to begin writing is half the battle, at least for me.
Now, if I can just figure out how to keep my butt in chair longer, maybe this book would move along at something beyond a glacial pace!
