RoW80 – April 24th Check In

It’s the last week of April! What the heck!

My goal during April has been to finish a 10%-cut-edit and diagnose Divine Fire‘s problems. On Wednesday, I considered stopping my edit to do some rewriting. Eric advised against it and that was a good call because the thought of rewriting just then stalled me out. I recovered on Thursday and Friday and managed 101 pages for the week. I have 38 pages left to the manuscript. That’s two days work at the pace I’ve been going, but I might try to push through and finish Monday. Then use the rest of the week to fix a few things.

I haven’t quite decided what the next goal should be for this round. I might continue working on Divine Fire, using May as a sort of overflow month. Eric has finals coming up and there’s also a trip to Omaha tentatively planned for the end of May. I also need to get back on the ball concerning queries and submissions. I think I have two for April thus far. Somehow my submission fire has waned.
