RoW80 – February 23rd Check In

Finished my first pass of rewrites on Monday, writing a tad over 600 words. The manuscript is still not 40K words.

Yesterday and today, I took a look at the list of scenes and decided what each scene does, what each scene should do, and jotted down some thoughts on how to make up the difference. Eric and I will talk about all of this tomorrow and over the weekend around his homework and studying. In the meantime, I should write some faux news stories which are going to go between chapters.

Had a moment today when I marveled at how much rewriting I’ve done thus far. Eric’s been a little impatient with this project and is pushing me to get the editing done. This rewrite pass might have taken a month in the past instead of a week.

I’m also quite tired of this project. I really want a break. This is probably just general/hormonal malaise that will pass. This is the hard part of writing and I’m not allowed run away. Yet.


Writer, publisher. Hobbies include reading, studying magic & illusions from a historical/theoretical perspective, and playing ultimate frisbee.

  1. No you can’t run away, you’re almost finished although if you need a break take some time out. It must be great to have someone on hand to sound your ideas off.
