I'm going through all of the chapters I'm keeping and noting little additions and cuts I need to make for the whole manuscript to make sense then I'll be going through the 40k or so I cut and marking out the things I want/need to keep before I rewrite the end. I've gotten through seven chapters so far and am feeling good about it. If I work hard then I'll be finished with it soon - really hard and I'll be finished this round of edits/rewriting by February. I've also come up with a few ideas for the sequel, not sure if that's a good thing or not. :D
I would absolutely love to finish Verity this year - it takes up so much of my time, it's ridiculous. I can't work on anything else for long because it starts bugging me again. I'm still thinking about Taunt though, so it's not a total loss. There's a little twist I've been thinking about and wondering is it time for plus I've been getting to know one of my more unpredictable characters, always fun. The fae novel has been springing up a bit too again - I wish I didn't need to sleep. :)
So updates are, I kinda plotted and I've edited seven chapters with the new plot in mind.
I know I keep changing my goals but bloody hell, I didn't expect to change my mind about Verity this many times. ;) My mood has improved bucketloads, sorry for the whininess last check-in! I would have chucked it all in if it wasn't for ROW80 so again, thank ye very much.
- Get latest version of Verity out of the way so I can get back to Taunt.
- Stop sitting around doing nothing when things aren't going like I planned.
- Visit more of my fellow ROW80ers than I did last week.
- Remember it's still only January - this round isn't nearly over so we've lots of time to crack on.
