I’m getting there, I’m getting there.
My version of editing is slow going, at the moment. I’m reorganizing my chapters and trying to even them out a little, as opposed to a 10-page Chapter 5 and a 20-page Chapter 8. My chapter-page goal now is between 5-7 pages. I’ve gotten to Chapter 8 now. It’s not that hard to move the chapters around, but it’s a pain to figure out places to put the breaks. I don’t want to cut them off mid-scene or something like that. Most of them so far have done pretty good, but 8 is going to be hard. It’s also going to be hard because I’ve changed the mannerisms of a few people and I’m having to rewrite how things are happening. I like how it’s playing out, though, and I’m really beginning to like where it’s going. I’ve found that I smile a lot when I’m writing. Which, I mean, it’s a good thing because I’m liking what I’m writing. It’s also a bad thing because people then ask me what I’m doing on my computer. And by “people,” I mean family, and I really don’t what them reading what I’m writing at the moment.
Anyway! Back to writing! How are y’all doing on your stories? Let me know!
