I’ve had a much more productive month than the last two. Not everything I missed last month got finished this month, but I’m happy with where I am at.
I finished what turned out to be a MAMMOTH, structural edit. Wow, that really was one of the hardest edits I’ve ever done. I’m blaming it on Ghost being the third in the trilogy. Everything has to play out, tie up, and have a grand finale feel about it. I put the pressure on myself big style.
I still have pages of notes to implement from the read through of books one and two, and notes I jotted down during the first edit, but I can see light at the end of the tunnel.
Another two fabulous authors guest posted on Writerly Bookish Stuff this month. Don’t worry if you missed them, here are the links:
Katie Masters: Creating Well Rounded Antagonists.
Sarina Langer: Bullet Journals.
I was adamant that I wasn’t going to participate in NaNo, but I was struck by sudden inspiration and characters who kept pestering me. I told myself that even if I don’t get to 50k words in a month, I will be further than I would have been if I left the story unwritten. I’m trying to hit my daily targets in the mornings, so I’m free to get back to the EVO Ghost edits in the evenings.
First and foremost, the EVO Ghost edits will continue. I would like to have sent the manuscript to my proofreader by the end of the year. NaNoWriMo has to come second to this, but that doesn’t mean I won’t try my hardest to hit that 50k.
November brings with it another two fabulous authors to Writerly Bookish Stuff:
Nov 10th: Brianna West on The Importance of a Book Cover.
Nov 24th: Rebecca Howie on Overcoming Writer’s Block.
Zombie Playlist Paperback
I’ve swiped all previous goals for the completion of the paperback. It’s almost ready, but if you haven’t realised it yet, I do everything arse about face. It’ll get done… eventually.
