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!
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!
I did it! My first draft is all typed up, ready to be edited. But, I’m going to let it marinate for a while before I start the first round of editing. Every writing advice book I’ve ever read said to do that, so I’m heeding the advice of the experts.
The word count came in at 24,065. Novella length, which is what I was going for!
The (very) rough draft of my book is written! Literally written, as I wrote it out longhand in a notebook. So, my first priority for the month of June is to get it typed up in Scrivener. Another goal is to get more familiar with Scrivener.
Finishing the first draft was just the beginning — so much else to do!
